Bebo y Cigala – Inolvidable

This is a great video. Bebo Valdés is a very well-respected Cuban pianist, and Diego El Cigala is one of Spain’s best flamenco singers. This is a track from their fantastic 2003 album, Lágrimas Negras, on which they fused Cuban rhythms and songs with Flamenco vocals. El Cigala’s voice is simply unbelievable. It’s probably on my list of top ten male voices I’ve ever heard. Bebo’s playing is very classy and restrained, as is the rest of the band, and their version of “Inolvidable” is pretty unforgettable.
