Diego el Cigala, which means 'the Little Prawn" in English is the stage name given to singer Diego Ramón Jiménez Salazar. This is because of his small size and deep passion for flamenco performance. His career started in Madrid's clubs – in flamenco peñas and tablaos (stages named after the wooden floorboards where flamenco dancers perform). Because of his excellence in flamenco music, it did not take long for famous bailores (flamenco dancers) such as Mario Maya, Faíco, Farruco, El Güito, Manuela Carrasco, Cristóbal Reyes, Carmen Cortés, Joaquín Cortés to notice him. He was then hired to sing on their tours. In 1994, he had already gained a big following, large enough for him to be considered at the forefront of the flamenco scene. He was garnering hits after hits, but he truly broke out internationally with the release of his album "Lágrimas Negras" in 2004, which gained the affection of The New York Times and BBC. Two years after, his album, "Picasso en Mis Ojos," won the 2006 Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Album. Apart from flamenco, he also studied and made music in Argentinian tango. All in all, he came out with 18 albums in his prolific career.
Currently, Diego El Cigala is touring in many countries. In his US leg, one of his performances will be at the Majestic Theatre in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday, October 13. If you want to see him live, you can now buy tickets!
