Istanbul to Host Flamenco Star Estrella Morente's Turkish Debut

The daughter of legendary flamenco singer Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente has been performing on stages since she was 7 years old.

Not only critics but almost all flamenco singers call her the “best female flamenco singer alive.” Her many accolades include the Ondas prize for best flamenco performer and being shortlisted for a Latin Grammy and the Premio Amigo. Now the time has finally come for Morente to bring her flamenco magic to İstanbul with a majestic performance set to be held at the city's Cemal Reşit Rey (CRR) concert hall at 8 p.m. Monday.

A living legend, Estrella Morente spoke with Today's Zaman about her career, her father and her first visit to Istanbul.
