Morente Nick lizard revives with the already legendary album in the programming Omega Other Music Auditorium of Murcia (02/10/2009)

In late 1996 Enrique Morente revolutionized the world of flamenco to add its voice to the rock of the Lizard Nick.

The result of the merger was the innovative Omega, one of the riskiest album of Spanish music, with texts by Lorca and Leonard Cohen.

After 12 years together on stage back in 2008 and republished his work exclusively for the Internet.

The singer threw Granada look back to remember the success that led to the album with his countrymen, Nick Lizard.

Therefore, only four concerts together offer this year, one in Mexico, the rest in the Primavera Sound festival, Benicassim FIB and La Mar de Músicas.

Now return to the Murcia Auditorium, tomorrow Saturday, October 3 at 21:30 hours, one of the scenes that greeted them on their first tour.

Tickets at 30 Euros.

The Omega, which will sound again in Murcia, is a seminal album in the flamenco entered the XXI century.

And although the great maestro Enrique Morente (Granada, 1942) can boast of having collaborated with wise and unbiased with many artists of different genres, one of his greatest successes is to find a meeting with Nick Lizard alternative rock.

Lorca and Leonard Cohen, another admirer of the poet to join together to form a review of Poet in New York.

And like all revolutionary work, collided with the incomprehension of the purists who attended perplexed to a new frontier of flamenco singing.

It had happened before with Shrimp and Legend of Time.

Two albums that still sound today fiercely modern.

An overreaction that is reflected in an anecdote that reminds Morente himself.

Before publication, the singer appeared on stage with Tomatito Albéniz, at a concert "very flamenco and very classic" that had raised supporters of the seats.

"The mistake was in the encore. We had everything ready, the curtain rose and there was Nick and interpret Lizard Omega. The issue lasted 10.40 minutes, but the insults in the hall lasted more than an hour."

Omega becomes, or Lizard Morente and Nick, a band located in the metal trash that has built its reputation in the inquebrantalidad of its proposal and its sound: hard, raw, direct and uncompromising.

"Orthodoxy to one that you like is me. And I am absolutely sure. But I think that Orthodoxy should serve to invite vereas see new, new roads and, if this is done with sincerity and honesty, always serves for new experiences, and mistakes are used for new windows. When you try new things, everything will not be perfect, that's always a risk. For me it would be much more comfortable singing always malagueña Canario. I'ma person who bores me and I always sing like that orthodoxy must take it, be inspired and developed to do things that invite new art. Because it is a live music. This is not a music museum. If not, would be for, would still be in the cave, we would still be in the furnace, we'd be still on the field and this is a professional art ...".

Word of Morente.
