Nominated for the "Best Flamenco Album of the Year" at the Latin Grammy Awards, and making certified gold and platinum records throughout his career, flamenco prince Miguel Poveda is taking the stage in Istanbul for the first time at İş Sanat. The first guest of İş Sanat's world music series, Poveda was born and raised in Barcelona and started singing at the age of 15 while accompanying his sister, Sonia Poveda, while she was dancing in Catalan Flamenco clubs.

He has released 11 albums so far, collaborated with important Flamenco giants including Enrique Morente, Carmen Linares, Paco de Lucia, Eva Yerbabuena and Tomatito, and performed at esteemed stages such as Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center and Wiener Koncerthaus. Having been chosen by renowned Spanish film director for the soundtrack of his film "Los Abrazos Rotos" (Broken Embraces), Poveda will perform at İş Sanat on Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m.
