The Alhambra put on its “prettiest face” to receive Pasión Vega. As she arrived in the Nasrid Palace the singer from Malaga declared that she was “excited and happy” to be presenting her latest album ‘Passion for Cano’, which she has already performed in some of Spain’s most important venues and in which she pays tribute to Carlos Cano (Granada 1946-Granada 2000) on the fifteenth anniversary of his death.
Her next date with the Monument is on 4th September in the Generalife Theatre, a meeting which she has been imagining since she was a child: “To sing in the Alhambra is like a dream come true. I want to remember Carlos Cano with great affection, with happiness and with positive energy. He takes me back to my childhood, the years with my family, coming back from the beach, listening to his songs together in the car, his coplas, his warm, serene voice”.
The Director of the Council of the Alhambra and Generalife, Reynaldo Fernández Manzano,
accompanied Pasión Vega in the presentation of her show in the Palace of Charles V. In his speech, Fernández Manzano remembered how Carlos Cano began in “urban music” and the important role he played in “recovering and updating the copla to bring it to a much wider audience. This excellent combination of Carlos Cano-Pasión Vega will fill the Generalife with emotion, thrills, shivers and duende”.
Pasión Vega remembered Carlos Cano in a friendly fun way: “Passion for Cano will allow all those who loved Carlos Cano to smile again and will enable all those who did not know his music, to discover it. Carlos was a very wise, very cultured man. He had a great range of feelings which he expressed so wonderfully well in his songs”.
The show is coming now to the Generalife (tickets are already on sale) after being acclaimed by both critics and audiences at other stages such as the Teatro Real in Madrid, where she performed in December: “We want to remember Carlos in a big way, with a very broad vision of his work. The idea is to make the show a big party, to think that the songs are still alive and will remain with us”. 
Her repertoire includes songs that were an important part of Carlos Cano’s career and others that are less well-known: “Some songs I have chosen on impulse, others because they are closely linked with Carlos, with his life. To play these songs has been pure pleasure for me”, explained a smiling Pasión Vega. The show includes numbers such as Luna de Abril, María la Portuguesa, Habaneras de Cádiz and Alacena de las Monjas, and for the first time she will be playing a new song composed by Antonio Martínez Ares, entitled Soy del Sur, “a story about the Spain in which Carlos grew up and embarked on his career, the Spain and the Andalusia of today, with all its light and shade”. 
In the Generalife Theatre Pasión Vega will be accompanied by the Málaga Symphony Orchestra.
