Bringing the soul and spirit of Spanish flamenco, touring NSW and the rest of Australia from September 2023, the acclaimed Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco Lara will inspire and capture the imagination of Australian audiences with the release and launch of his new album “Duende”,a self-produced album of original compositions. This show presents a stunning live performance of flamenco guitar with a fusion of music, song, and flamenco dance performed by Lara and his talented ensemble.
Paco Lara, is Australia’s most prominent flamenco guitarist, representing Spanish culture and music at it best and he has toured internationally alongside some of the greatest artists and maestro legends of flamenco in Spain. In 2017 he migrated to Australia from Jerez, the heartland of flamenco in Spain, and now his style, halfway between tradition and contemporary flamenco, is contributing to increase popularity and understanding of this musical genre in Australia, especially in NSW where the artist resides.
Flamenco was recognised internationally in 2010 as Intangible Heritage for Humanity by UNESCO demonstrating that this artform inspires people across the world.
“DUENDE” brings a unique international collaboration between Spanish and Australian musicians and shows the most emotional compositions of Paco.
With Lara’s recent successes at the Sydney Opera House and at Adelaide Guitar Festival (2021 and 2023) and his national tour with the Andalusian Guitar Show in 2022, promises Duende to be an entertaining and popular show with Lara’s flamenco guitar mastery showcasing his talent at the top of the Australian contemporary music and performance scene.
He will share this passion through his mesmerising masterful skills and techniques on the flamenco guitar and ‘with impressive and elegant articulation’, the music, beyond being exceptionally well played, is always pretty and eminently approachable – a quality compounded by the choice of repertoire. (Music reviewer, John Shand the Sydney Morning Herald about Andalusian Guitar Show,2020)
