This show is part of the Flamenco Festival New York 2019
Israel Fernández was born in Toledo, Spain. Influenced by his mother and grandmother, he began singing at age 11. A child prodigy, Fernández soon began singing on television as a teenager.
He blends traditional flamenco with his own style which though contemporary, has the flamenco character of the voices of old.
Israel Fernández ‘Universo Pastora’
Israel’s third album ‘Universo Pastora’ (Pastora’s Universe) pays tribute to Pastora Pavón “La Niña de los Peines” (Seville, Spain, 1890-1969). She was the most important female flamenco singer of the 20th century.
Pavón began singing to support her family as a child in 1898, before the age of the phonograph. Though she participated in the ópera flamenca shows of the modern period and made many recordings, Pavón remained a link to the simple flamenco of the 19th century.
Once upon a time, there were no flamenco shows. There was only flamenco at home with family. That’s what Pavón represents.
The album is available from Universal Music.
