Spanish Flamenco artist Estrella Morente at Istanbul İş Sanat
Estrella Morente released her first album in 2001.Istanbul’s İş Sanat will host Spanish flamenco singer Estrella Morente on Feb. 6. Daughter of flamenco legend Enrique Morente, the singer’s success can be traced back to her childhood. Morente grew up surrounded by flamenco performers and aficionados and it is in this sphere that she has matured both personally and professionally. At seven years old, she sang for the legendary guitarist Sabicas and by 17, she gave her first solo concert in Madrid. One of the best loved artists of Spain, Estrella has won innumerable awards including the Ondas Prize for best flamenco performer, and was shortlisted for a Latin Grammy and the Premio Amigo.
In early 2001, Morente released her first album “Mi Cante y un Poema,” for which her father was the spiritual guide and producer. The same year her second album Calle del Aire came out and was hailed as an eclectic recording with a highly vanguard approach by the press. Morente’s albums have reached platinum and gold sales status respectively.
The concert will start at 8 p.m.
