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

Bill T Jones is an acquired taste. I like how he challenges the audience with his art. This performance was no different. It was typical Bill T Jones - wonderfully abstract. His stories are (auto-) biographical and were fascinating to listen to in and of themselves. The movement (a mixture of dance and contact improvisation) and singing around him challenged the audience's preconceived notion of what should accompany the stories. I did not grasp all the references (musical, verbal and otherwise) but his 20 min chat after the performance with the audience elucidated much of his inspiration and the process of developing this work. The only part I disliked were the roughly 4 mins towards the end which used very a loud grating sound as backdrop. I found it to be aural torture. Aside from that, I'm glad I was able to catch this performance for a great price!
