While Cigala’s gravelly voice, rooted in deep flamenco, at times strains to hit the high notes, and he lacks the sheer vocal power of the best soneros. But this is more than a novelty album. As he’s done in the past, Cigala finds the common ground that connects these different musical traditions – most splendidly in the opening track, “Moreno Soy.” And, as always, Cigala brings passion to every song. For fans of Lagrimas Negras, the record includes yet another off road, beautifully phrased version of a Cuban classic: “Come Fue,” recorded with another Cuban jazz piano great: jazz piano master Gonzalo Rubalcaba.
