Francisco Jose Arcangel Ramos "Arcangel" is expected to promote his new album Quijote de Los Suenos on February 3 in Sofia accompanied by Miguel Angel Cortes on guitar and Agustin Dias­sera (percussions).

The 35-year-old singer is a new Fla­menco rising star with pro­found knowledge of traditional flamenco, respect for the genre's musical roots and continued interest in innovations and defining his art. In his recent album, he sug­gests an imaginary journey along two riverbanks: between tradition and avantgarde. In his untir­ing quest for new nuan­ces, the sing­er shows his rebel­lious, outside-of-the-box frame of mind along with his traditional views, inher­it­ed from his ances­tors.

Though young, Arcangel has a long record of achievements. He first caught the eye of critics and the general public alike at the 10th Seville Bien­ni­al in 1988, becoming a sought aft­er per­form­er and work­ing with such flamenco dan­cers as Eva La Yerbabuena and Israel Galvan, Cristina Hoyos and Javier Baron.

Friday's concert starts at 8pm at Sofia Live Club.
