David Lagos HODIERNO Sep. Wed 26 | 23:00 | 20,00€ | BUY

‘Hodierno’ is the concert of the third studio album by David Lagos, in which he exhibits his cante to the listener from a contemporary perspective, with sounds and instrumentalists of the current time, in coexistence with a cantaor heritage of almost two hundred years.

The live creation of Alfredo Lagos’ guitar, the saxophones of Juan Jiménez and the electronic music of Artomático, open to Jerez-born cantaor and composer sound, rhythmic, harmonic and timbral paths that are only possible from his deep knowledge of flamenco art and from his perspective open to other music and sounds.

The presence of electronic music and sound art of Artomático, producer of the studio version of “Hodierno”, manifests the sound as a musician more at the service of accompaniment to cante. David Lagos as a singer and musician, explores the legacy of cante from the present.

“Hodierno”, the artist’s third album after ‘El espejo en que me miro’ and ‘Mi toqueque al cante jerezano’, is an open door to recreation on cante and a laboratory open to the search for new paths in the repertoire cantaor by David Lagos.
