EL SALTO – new album 2021
Luciole International Theatre in partnership with MECA presents Pilar Andújar in concert with her latest 2021 album El Salto. This avant-garde flamenco experience will take place at MECA in Houston, TX on September 4th, 2021.
Pilar Andújar began her dance training at the early age of seven and holds degrees in Spanish Dance, Flamenco and Ballet, as well as a Master of Performing Arts. She started singing in 2002 with the Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana Company at the Joyce Theater in New York, NY – USA.
She debuted her first album Andró in 2017 and toured the USA, Spain, Algeria, Turkey and Mexico. It was nominated in seven categories at the Spain’s Música INdependiente MIN awards in 2018. Her song La última palabrita won the top prize at a songwriters competition in Alicante – Spain.
She has taken her music around the world including in Mexico on Morelia’s Square, in Algeria at the Salle Magreb de Oran, in Turkey at the music festival METUART in Ankara, the Bosnian National Theater in Zenica, in Spain at Cafe Berlin in Madrid, and in the USA at the Arts Center Theater in Ozark, AR, the Scat Jazz Lounge in Dallas, TX and One2One in Austin, TX.
The New York Times has called her fusion of traditional Flamenco with New Flamenco and Pop: “Imperious, Dominant and Individual.”
