Sabina returns to the stage with Leiva

The legendary Joaquín Sabina has returned to the tables at the 2022 Goya Awards gala after two years of absence. Accompanied by his partner and friend Leiva on guitar, the man from Jaén performed one of his classics, an acoustic version of So young and so old and he has also done so on his 73rd birthday, just two years after the serious fall that led him to cancel what was his last concert to date.

This Saturday’s has been an intimate performance full of complicit looks between the two composers. Leiva, who won the Goya for Best Original Song in 2018 for The call, started standing on the guitar. She followed him after Sabina’s broken voice, from a chair next to her. The singer he hasn’t left his seat until the end of the songwhen he has recited out loud and with a smile the phrase “for the moment, no goodbye, guys”which predicts that this will not be the last time we see him.

A few months ago, however, Sabina assured that she would not return to the stage “as long as people are wearing a mask or can’t get up. I’m afraid it won’t be for at least a year and a half.” I’d come back, said “to say hello and goodbye”Like in your song. However, she has made an exception tonight.

Two years after his serious fall

The last time the singer-songwriter was heard on stage was on February 12, 2020 at the Wizink Center in Madrid, in a duo concert with Joan Manuel Serrat. Shortly after the start of the show, Sabina tripped and fell into the security pit from a height of almost two meters, receiving a strong blow for which he had to be operated on for an intracranial hematoma. Shortly after her fall, Sabina returned to the stage in a wheelchair to say goodbye to her audience and end the performance. She was going to resume in May, but the pandemic changed the singer’s plans.
