Performers

Throughout his career, Diego El Cigala has extended the boundaries of flamenco into many other Latin genres, most recently, salsa on his latest disc "Indestructible." "I don’t just try to mix things. I look for things in common that were already in music," he said. "Every time I face a new genre, I do it with maximum respect and by listening to the masters." Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
