Born into a gypsy family in Corral de Almaguer (Toledo), Israel Fernandez infuses traditional flamenco singing with his own unique style. Not only has Israel performed all over the world, with flamenco queen Sara Baras, he has also released three successful solo albums. On his third album, Universo Pastora, Israel pays tribute to one of the most important figures in flamenco history, Pastora Pavón ("La Niña de los Peines"). He faithfully maintains the essence of her art while putting his own stamp on each interpretation. The result is a work of art in which we can sense their two hearts in harmony. Accompanied by Keko Baldomero on guitar.
This concert is co-presented by Flamenco Festival NY and World Music Institute. Flamenco Festival NY is supported by the Government of Andalusia.
