VIRTUDES SANCHEZ-MORENO (vocals) from Conil de la Frontera, Spain. Conil is located in cradle of flamenco, southern Andalucia. She is part of a new wave of vocalists that is descending upon Andalusian folk music, ready to defend and to enrich different schools of cante. Her voice combines her Andalusian heritage, flamenco, canto Lirico Espanol as well as her classical vocal training she recieved later in life at conservatories in Conil, Sevilla and Madrid. Marrying tradition and progress, this young cantora presents varied offerings with a capacity to look outward toward other terrains while her musicality and sense of rhythm project a clear intention to maintain Andalucia's vitality by marrying tradition and progress with skill and know how.
