Spanish diva comes to Istanbul
ISTANBULSpanish pop singer Luz Casal will be on the stage on April 29 at the Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall in Istanbul to perform some of her most famous songs from her 30-year career.
Born in 1958, Casal began her career with the group Los Fannys. After success in the 1980s in Spain, she achieved international fame, particularly in France, after two of her songs were included by Pedro Almodóvar in his film “Tacones Lejanos” (High Heels).
Her LP “Quiérame aunque te duela” in 1987 showed her ability as an original ballad singer, which helped her break the rock cliché and win over a mass public.
In 2007, after overcoming some health problems, she recorded the album “Vida tóxica.” In 2010 she received the “V de Vida” award from the princess of Asturias.
In 2013 she was awarded the National Prize for Current Music form the Spanish government.
