Estrella Morente

The gifted cantaora Estrella Morente belongs to one of Spain's true flamenco dynasties. She was born in Las Gabias, in the province of Granada, to Andalusian music legend Enrique Morente and dancer Aurora Carbonell.

Her uncles are guitarist Antonio Carbonell and cantaor José Carbonell, and her grandfather is the legendary guitarist Montoyita.
