Spain’s history can be heard in Lole Montoya’s voice. Uncontained by the categories of ‘singer’ or ‘cantaora’, she emotionally discharges her spirit with unseen courage and technique. Her prowess has been displayed across a long repertoire, which includes her work as one-half of the renowned duo Lole y Manuel. As husband and wife, they began their musical journey in the seventies and continued to re-shape the new flamenco scene, together and apart, until Manuel’s passing in 2015. Montoya carries their ever-burning torch on the stage to this day. She will be accompanied by the acclaimed guitarist Rycardo Moreno.
