Angelita Montoya

Flamenco vocalist Angelita Montoya is set to perform on March 15 in Washington DC and March 16 at Roulette in New York City. Angelita Montoya is the daughter of bailaor (dancer) Antonio Montoya and cantaora (singer) La Negra. Angelita Montoya will celebrate the ignored poets of the Generation of ’27 through her first solo project, Versos Olvidados. “I am very grateful to the SGAE Foundation for Flamenco Eñe because it will allow us to fly with this project,” said Montoya.

Angelita Montoya will highlight the writings of Concha Méndez, Gloria de la Prada and María Teresa Roca de Togares, among others, withe her vocals and the music of Alejandro Cruz Benavides. The Generation of ’27 was a significant group of Spanish poets that appeared in Spanish literary circles between 1923 and 1927, who combined avant-garde forms of art and poetry.

The shows are supported by the Cultural Ministry of the Embassy of Spain and the SGAE Foundation.
