ARCÁNGEL & New Bulgarian Voices choir
cond. by Georgi Petkov
with Dani de Moron, Ricardo Moreno, José Manuel Posada ‘Popo’ & Agustín Diassera
Latin Grammy® Best Flamenco Album 2018 for Arcangel: Al Este del cante (Universal Spain)
The album „Al este del cante“ by the prominent Flamenco singer Arcángel was recorded live during three concerts with the New Bulgarian Voices choir in August 2017. On November 15 2018 it was awarded Latin Grammy® for Best Flamenco Album.
Arcángel, one of Flamenco’s leading voices, is looking towards what he calls “the perfect harmony of Bulgarian choir singing” – and he finds it with the help of the incredibly young singers of the New Bulgarian Voices, conducted by Georgi Petkov. The repertoire spans from well known Flamenco pieces and Bulgarian traditional songs, to originals from the performers. The band – featuring also Dani de Morón (Flamenco guitar), Rycardo Moreno (acoustic guitar) José Manuel Posada ‘Popo’ (bass) and Agustín Diassera (percussion) – brings together traditional melodies from both ends of Mediterranean in an unique fusion, delivering perfect delight.
