Acclaimed as the leading flamenco guitarist of his generation and winner of the 2001 Grammy for Best Flamenco Album, Amigo has worked with artists as diverse as Manolo Sanlúcar, David Bowie, José Mérce and Keith Richards.
Profoundly flamenco, Amigo?s intricate guitar playing creates original melodies and dramatic flourishes. Accompanied by guitar and percussion, Amigo will perform diverse styles reflected on his new recording, Un Momento en el Sonido, including bulería, soleá, farruca, taranta, tangos, rumba and bolero.
?? the alternately percussive and singing tones produced by Amigo's remarkable handiwork point to two strong influences: flamenco guitar icon Paco de Lucia and jazz luminary Pat Metheny.?
