Diego El Cigala


Diego el Cigala - Flamenco vocalist Diego Ramón Jiménez Salazar was born in Madrid in December of 1968. The flamenco singer, Diego, el Cigala, is one of the most praised heirs of Camarón de la Isla in the cante flamenco, and it was Camarón himself who gave him the moniker Dieguito el Cigala. Coming from a family of artists, he is the nephew of Rafael Farina. He grew up in the Rastro neighborhood of Madrid, where he began to make his own experiences as cantaor. At the young age of 12, he won first prize in the Young Flamenco Artist Contest of Getafe and an award on the TVE talent show, “Gente jóven.” He soon began to play at dances, being solicited by dancers like Cristóbal Reyes, Mario Maya, Manolete, Farruco, Manuel Camacho, and El Güito, among others. In 1994, he started his solo career with the album, “Undebel,” produced by David Amaya
