Pitingo a great singer
A music recommendation for those open-minded people who want to enjoy a new fresh style of fusion music: soul,pop and flamenco. The king of this style is Pitingo, a singer with a strong sensitivity coming from Huelva (Andalucia)son to a Spanish sailor and a gipsy woman. He moved to Madrid and started to work in the airport carrying passengers baggage. He was discovered in 2004, in Madrid and started to sing in a small pub along with other flamenco singers. However, he would not record his first solo album until 2006 " Pitingo con Habichuelas", due to his collaboration with the family "Habichuela". His second album is called "pitingo souleria" due to his soul touch combined with pop,flamenco and gospel. It´s a pleasure to listen to his music that´s why I wanted to share it with you. I recommend you the following songs: his version of "killing me softly with this song" and his special version of "i will survive" being in included in this last album.
