Israel Fernández Pura Sangre Featuring Diego del Morao
Charisma, talent and freshness define this emblematic flamenco duo.
Israel Fernández is one of the most celebrated flamenco musicians of his generation. Born with flamenco in his blood, he was brought up in a gypsy family of Toledo. Now he presents his latest album – Pura Sangre (pure blood) – in collaboration with renowned Jerez guitarist Diego del Morao.
The most personal work to date, this is an intimate look at his surroundings and his way of interacting with the outside world. It is a plea for truth, the most vital expression of an artist who has composed all the lyrics and music which make up this album.
His album Amor won the Premio Odeón and he has also been nominated for Best Flamenco Album in the Latin Grammy awards.
