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).

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
