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 as one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated at home and abroad for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs in the Andalusian tradition, 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
