Considered a musical genius in his native Spain, superstar Miguel Poveda’s nuanced and soulful voice is unrivaled in the world of flamenco. The event is an intimate conversation on his trajectory, his inspiration and his life.

Miguel Poveda joins his own sound with the musical diversity of the traditional roots of flamenco. In this journey through the universe of Poveda, we discover through his latest songs his love for flamenco, poetry, and Andalusian folk music. His charisma, social commitment, and passion on the stage bring to his concerts a unique experience of love, art, and emotion.

Flamenco music cannot be understood without Miguel Poveda. His amazing voice and the way he performs his songs, join together the old with the new wave of flamenco. Throughout these 30 years, Miguel Poveda has matured with elegance and his songs along with him.

With more than 14 albums and awards such as the 2007 Spanish National Music Award, the 2011 Culture Music Award of Catalonia, the 2012 Andalusian Medal, Miguel Poveda has built his career with a mix of love for the past and creative risk-taking in the present, always inspired by the very best talents in music.

Pepa Anastasio is a professor at Hofstra University in New York, where she teaches courses on literature, gender, and cultural studies in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, the program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the LGBTQ+ Studies program. Her research centers on cultural practices in Spain, with a focus on popular musical practices in the 20th and 21st centuries.
