Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More
For more than 30 years, the warmth and passionate elegance of Maria del Mar Bonet's voice has seduced audiences around the world. A symbol of national pride -- she defiantly sang in her native Catalan before a ban on the language was lifted with Franco's death -- the Majorcan singer is one of the great proponents of Mediterranean song. With the release of her album, Iaia, Brazilian balladeer Monica Salmaso burst onto the international scene, winning legions of instant fans. Whether serving up a set of infectious sambas or paying musical tribute to the river and sea goddesses of Brazil's African-related spiritualism, Salmaso is "an artist to be watched, one with extraordinary potential" (Los Angeles Times).
