The Bay Area is thrilled with the news of Diego el Cigala's much anticipated debut here this Fall. Noted as a pioneer for his unique approach to Latin American music forms such as the bolero, tango and Afro-Caribbean jazz, Cigala won his first Latin Grammy for Bebo & Cigala: "Lagrimas Negras," hailed by critic Ben Ratliff of The New York Times as Album of the Year and "one of the great new cross-pollinating documents of Latin music." His latest album "Cigala & Tango" marries "Spanish flamenco with the equally gritty and powerful South American tango." -The Observer, UK.
