Loud and Live Presents Diego El Cigala.
Born on December 27th, 1968 as Ramón Jiménez Salazar, his transformation to Diego would arise after a family dispute in the same baptismal pool and “Cigala” thanks to the Losada brothers. Madrilenian from the Rastro, talent came easily to the family and, although his mother Aurora and sister were not professional singers, those who listened to her sing were impressed by the echoes of flamenco in her voice. At the same time, his father, the Andalusian Jose de Cordoba, earned a living on stages such as Torres Bermejas, El Corral de la Pacheca, and Arco de Cuchilleros. This influence helped a young Diego, barely 12 years old, win first place in the young flamenco artist competition of Getafe, Spain, and a prize in the TVE game show Gente joven, which elevated his status and allowed him to work with top artists such as Cristobal Reyes, Mario Maya and Farruco. In turn, artists such as Camaron, Gerardo Nunez, and Vicente Amigo continue to claim proceeds from recordings in the studio.
