Miguel Poveda
Zaguan
Harmonia Mundi

By VINCENT ATTARD

Published March 3, 2006

Miguel Poveda is an artist who is beginning to glow in the flamenco world’s limelight thanks to his golden pipes, remarkable collaborators and poster-worthy good looks. Zaguan is a seductive record that plays by the rules while spicing it up just enough to craft a modern take on a traditional genre. Juan Gomez Chicuelo is just as much the star here as Poveda, offering some of the most powerful, yet elegant guitar playing on a contemporary flamenco record. “Sal Al Guisao” has the breathtaking feel of a musical tragedy, gloriously filled with Chicuelo’s melancholy string stabs around Poveda’s helpless cries. Standouts “Si Me Vieras Liviana” and “Casa Pavon Cantinas” emit the feel and passion of Juanito Valderrama and Manolo Caracol, two artists so influential to Poveda. Flamenco dance is clearly an inspiration on Zaguan, as many of the tunes are as ready for graceful dancing as they are for weary listening.  With this set Miguel Poveda adds credibility on his continued quest to be considered one of the important voices of modern flamenco.
