Esperanza Fernández is, without a doubt, one of the main voices of the flamenco cante (‘singing’) at present. In addition to her remarkable abilities, already proved in countless concerts, she has a large repertoire. An extremely versatile singer, she has lent her voice to many different musical styles.
Fernández’s career has been marked by names such as Yehudi Menuhin, Rafael Frübeck de Burgos, Mauricio Sotelo, Edmon Colomer, Rosa Torres-Pardo – and ensembles such as Trío Accanto, Perspectives Ensemble (NYC), Lim (Madrid), the Spanish National Orchestra and the Orquesta de Barcelona y Nacional de Cataluña.
Born a gypsy in the legendary neighbourhood of Triana, Seville, Fernández received her flamenco legacy in a family of important cantaores (‘singers’), guitarists and dancers. Fernández is currently one of the best and most authentic voices in modern flamenco.
