José Manuel León and Alicia Carrasco - Spain’s No.1 contemporary flamenco guitarist
Flamenco guitar is headed for another revolution. Anyone who thought that with Paco de Lucía everything had been reinvented was wrong. A new generation, free now from pressures, hang-ups and constraints (though utilizing the undisputed master as a springboard, of course), are pushing out in new musical directions with this instrument whose richness seems inexhaustible. And there's one name in particular to watch. Jose Manuel Leon.
You have to listen to José Manuel León carefully... and without prejudice. Because from the very first note of his ‘Sirimusa’ he makes absolutely clear that his guitar is something you haven't heard before. When virtuosity is as easy as pie to you, your hands and mind are free to wander. The young guitarist from Algeciras's style of playing and composing is imaginative, open-minded and very individual. It's at once both flamenco and contemporary. And in addition, it has the virtue of being accessible, in the sense that it's easy on the ear. That doesn't mean to say it's simple. Quite the opposite, those deceptive, fresh sounds are the outer signs of a complex world, built on absolute mastery of both technique and compás.
Doors Open 8pm / Show starts at 9pm
