At the age of eighteen, Niña Pastori became one of the youngest rising Spanish stars when she released her flamenco-pop debut album, Entre Dos Puertos, which sold more than 150,000 copies and spawned a hit single, "Tú Me Camelas," that was played on radio stations and in clubs across Spain. Since then, the young artist has branched out into the American mainstream, continuing her successful pattern of recording albums that mesh flamenco with elements of salsa and jazz, as well as strong vocals. The daughter of famous flamenco singer La Pastora, Pastori possesses a deep comprehension of flamenco, which she developed as a child, that has allowed her to fuse the music style with more universal elements, most apparent on her latest album, Joyas Prestadas, released this past month.
