This week three concerts have been organised in hommage to the flamenco guitarist Manuel Moreno Junquera ‘Moraíto Chico’, who died in August this year. The first will be held on Friday 18 November 2011 in Jerez de la Frontera, followed by two concerts next month at the Arteria Coliseum in Madrid on 14 and 15 December 2011.
The long list of artists who will perform at these concerts gives some idea of the breadth and the deep respect for Moraíto in the flamenco world. The Madrid concert on 14 December 2011 will feature: Paco de Lucía, Tomatito, Diego el Morao, Niña Pastori, Marina Heredia, Vicente Soto, Miguel Poveda, Diego el Cigala, El Torta, Tomasito, Jesús Méndez, Fernando de la Morena, Manuel Parrilla + Los Roqueros Canasteros (Diego Carrasco, Raimundo Amador, Jorge Pardo, Tino de Geraldo) + Cuadro de Jerez (Los Zambos, Pepe del Morao, Ane Jesús, Juan Grande, Kini, La Chati, Marci Chícharo, Juana del Pipa, Felipa, Manuel Molina, Carmen Jiménez).
