Editorial Reviews

"A voice that burns and blows you away." - LE MONDE

Discovered in 1993 after winning four prizes under the spotlights of the Festival Nacional de Cante de Las Minas (the reference for flamenco singing in Spain), Miguel Poveda now releases his most beautiful work. Connoisseurs describe Poveda as a "pure voice"--a huge talent who is always looking for innovation in his singing and, at the same time, keeps a deep respect for tradition.

Format: Audio CD
Flamenco is a genre whose roots and traditions run deep - experimentation is looked upon with some degree of suspicion by old-timers (as in any artistic pursuit). Miguel Poveda has created a body of work over the past 15 years or so that is strong testament to the fact that among the younger cantaores there are individual artists who feel a strong respect for and connection to the traditions that have made flamenco live and breathe. He is not above crossing the genre frontiers - his 2005 release Desglaç is a great example of how this can be done with taste and respect - but for the most part, his albums are documents of pure cante flamenco, in the spirit of the great voices who have come before him. His heart and soul pour into his music - his love for his mentors, both direct and in spirit, is blindingly apparent. On one track, the listener is treated to a guest performance by the great Diego Carrasco - the wonderful bulería `Alfileres de colores', co-written by Carrasco and Pedro Rivera.

TIERRA DE CALMA was the first CD I acquired by Miguel - it's still my favorite. His incredible voice is mostly accompanied only by the amazing guitars of Juan Carlos Romero (Romero's CD Azulejo is a also great recording); percussive touches added by a small number of friends; and David Peña `Dorantes' plays piano on one track. The arrangements therefore remain uncluttered, allowing Miguel's voice, and the interplay and communication between him and Romero to take center stage - the results are breathtaking.

True flamenco singing can take some first-time listeners by surprise.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Issued at the end of 2006 was Miguel Poveda's album "Tierra de Calma"; this present album, an on-demand CD ROM version at discounted price, suffers only by the absence of liner notes. What you do get is an outstanding modern flamenco recording with guitarist Juan Carlos Romero and the deep interpretive cante of Poveda. Perhaps Poveda's most mature recording, it has less razzle dazzle, involves minimal instrumental support, but places greater emphasis on the lyrics. As in his first album, "Suena Flamenco," he introduces on one track the piano to establish a novel classical art/cabaret format. Compared to his earlier, more extroverted albums, the slower songs of "Tierra de Calma" are for late night contemplation. Miguel Poveda has won awards early in his career and after a decade of developing his art, he has become a powerful voice for contemporary serious flamenco. This is a great album.
