Through his passionate delivery, enviable command of the repertoire, and resolve to embrace modernity, award-winning flamenco singer Arcángel (given name: Francisco José Arcángel Ramos) has earned a reputation as one of the most respected, innovative cantaores of the 21st century. While his forceful singing is his most tangible trademark, he is also celebrated for composing original works, as well as provocative re-arrangements of flamenco’s canonical texts. His 2001 self-titled debut (on which he worked with prestigious veteran guitarist and producer Juan Carlos Romero) won the Andalucía Joven Award and the Premio Nacional Flamenco Activo de Úbeda. While touring, he earned his first winning placement (of several) at the Palenque, en la Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla de 2002, and received the El Premio Giraldillo as best cantaor. On 2011’s Quijote de los Sueños, he composed songs for the poems of Juan Cobos Wilkins, wrinkling critical eyebrows for his non-conventional approach that embraced classical and folk traditions as a part of the lineage of flamenco. 2015’s Tablao was recorded in three emblematic musical portraits of the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville, all fundamental in the history and development of flamenco. The live performances that followed won attention across Europe, due to his command of the material and a punk attitude that sought to erase boundaries between artist and audience.
