Flamenco, Spain

Alba Molina

Alba

Alba Molina was born into the lineage of flamenco Molina (guitar-players) and Montoya
(singers and dancers). Her parents were the vanguardist flamenco couple Lole Montoya and Manuel Molina, known as Lole y Manuel and one of the most popular flamenco artists of the 70ties in Spain. (Internationally they got popular after Quentin Tarantino included their song “Tu Mirá” in Kill Bill Volume 2).
Since very young Alba Molina has been performing flamenco, but also hip hop, pop rock, boleros, ballads, Brazilian music… She collaborated in “Las Niñas” (flamenco-hiphop) selling over 80.000 copies early 90ties and in “Tucara” in 2009 until now. She has also collaborated with Jorge Drexler, Alejandro Sanz, Pedro Guerra, Navajita Plateá, Dorantes, Manuel Molina, Lole Montoya, O´funk’illo.
In 2016 Alba Molina recorded “Alba canta a Lole y Manuel con la guitarra de Joselito Acedo” (Universal) , an homage to her parents. Alba Molina chose 11 songs just for the personal memories and emotions they represetend to her. The recordings are faithful to the original songs, voice and guitar, without tweaks, loyal to the old recordings, only the clapping of her family accompany them. An intimate dúo album and show with the delicate guitar player Joselito Acedo.
In 2017 Alba recorded a new homage to Manuel Montoya, her father and best friend, (passed away in May 2015) “Caminando con Manuel”. Again 11 songs with the outstanding guitar of Joselito Acedo and with two splendid duos:one with Estrella Morente and the other with Alejandro Sanz.
Alba Molina also tours with Rycardo Moreno, one of the best present Flamenco-Jazz composers and guitar players Spain: Together they explore and erase all borders of Flamenco and Jazz.
