More about The Paco de Lucía Project
De Lucía was widely considered to be the world’s premier flamenco guitarist and by many to be Spain’s greatest musical export. He has had a revolutionary influence on flamenco music both as a composer and otherwise. His influence on flamenco guitar has been compared with that of Andrés Segovia’s on classical guitar. Throughout his 50-year career, he performed and recorded with musical legends such as Eric Clapton, Chick Corea, Carlos Santana, and Al Di Meola, among many others.
The nucleus of the band came together in 2004, at the recording of de Lucía’s Latin Grammy Award-winning Cositas Buenas (Good Little Things), and grew into a collection of exceptional young talent, including his nephew, guitarist Antonio Sánchez; bassist Alain Pérez; percussionist Israel Suárez “Piraña”; Antonio Serrano, harmonica; singer David de Jacoba; and dancer Antonio Fernandez Montoya “Farruco” (aka “Farru”). With this group, de Lucía toured and performed for the next 10 years. The group’s talented, combustible mix of wisdom and power was best captured in the 2010 double CD Paco de Lucía En Vivo – Conciertos: Live in Spain.
