Israel Fernández is one of the most celebrated young flamenco performers in Spain today, a powerful singer, renowned for infusing the genre with his own unique personality and flair. Born into a Roma family in Toledo, Fernández made his recording debut in 2008 at the age of 18. He has released five albums including Naranjas Sobre le Nieve, Con Hilo De Oro Fino, Universo Pastora, Amor, and Pura Sangre. Amor was nominated for a Latin GRAMMY in 2020 as Best Flamenco Album. More recently, Fernández has worked with Spanish musician/producer El Guincho (ROSALíA, FKA twigs) and guitarist Diego del Morao on a range of single releases such as “La Inocencia” and “En La Feria De La Bamera”. World Music Institute welcomes back Israel to NYC after presenting him at Joe’s Pub to a sold-out audience in 2019.
