Created by Grammy Award-winning guitarist and producer Javier Limón, this special event honors one of Spain's contemporary Flamenco legends, the late guitarist, composer Paco de Lucía, whose music Javier had produced and with whom he worked closely. Limón has reassembled Paco’s acclaimed sextet including de Lucía’s own nephew Antonio Sanchez on guitar, Israel Suárez “Piraña” on percussion, Alain Perez on bass, Antonio Serrano on harmonica, David de Jacoba on vocals and acclaimed dancer Antonio Fernandez Montoya ‘Farruco’ will pay tribute to the late maestro and the art form he so advanced.
Together this sextet conjured the spirit of the great Paco de Lucía and held a torch to the blue flame of his anthemic music for one hour and a half. During that time we were treated to some of the most sensuous and alluring music to come out of Spain in decades...Latin Jazz Network
