Flamenco Legends by Javier Limón:

The Paco de Lucía Project

November 14, 2017

Venue Matthews Theatre

Overview

Paco de Lucía was arguably the world’s premier flamenco guitarist at the time of his untimely death in 2014. Long considered Spain’s greatest musical export, his revolutionary influence on flamenco guitar was often compared with that of Andres Segovia on classical guitar. His legendary status lives on in Javier Limón, his longtime collaborator and producer, who brings the secrets of flamenco at its highest level to an experience that honors the legacy of his master while paving a new path for the future of the genre. A ten-time Grammy nominee, Limón has reassembled the original band that toured with de Lucía for the last decade of his career, including the dancer Farruco.
