Inarguably one of the greatest living guitarists in the world and one of the great heroes of modern flamenco, Paco de Lucía is credited with creating a ‘fusion’ style flamenco influenced by jazz stretching and embellishing flamenco’s strict structure but remaining faithful to the soul of its roots. The most innovative and influential flamenco artist of the last thirty years, de Lucía’s flamenco recordings have had a revolutionary impact. His groundbreaking collaborations with jazz artists such as John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Al Di Meola and Larry Coryell, as well as his notable soundtracks, have brought him worldwide popularity and acclaim. De Lucía’s compositional genius and the pure intimacy of his dazzling guitar virtuosity make a deeply authentic and universal statement that transcends the folkloric. With mesmerizing cascades of high velocity notes, de Lucía’s performances offer superb playing, dancing and singing and have been called ‘flamenco fireworks’. "Explosive, percussive, perpetual-motion concert", hailed the Chicago Tribune.
