Paco de Lucia Tour in Rio

Paco_de_Lucia_in_2010Francisco Sánchez Gómez, known as  Paco de Lucía, is a   Spanish flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.

De Lucía is noted for his innovation and colour in harmony and his remarkable dexterity, technique, strength and fluidity in his right hand, capable of executing extremely fast and fluent  picados. A master of contrast, he often juxtaposes picados with  rasgueados and other techniques and often adds abstract chords and scale tones to his compositions with jazz influences. These innovations saw him play a key role in the development of traditional Flamenco and the evolution of New Flamenco and Latin jazz fusion from the 1970s.

Paco will be touring in Rio de Janeiro and will present two shows on November 2nd and 8th at Theatro Municial do Rio de Janeiro.

If you love Flamenco music, you have to go!
