The Paco de Lucía Project
LATIN / JAZZ / WORLD
The Paco de Lucía Project, created by 10-time Latin Grammy Award-winner Javier Limón, reassembles the original band that toured with legendary flamenco guitarist, Paco de Lucía, for the last decade of his career. Paco de Lucía was widely considered to be the world’s premier flamenco guitarist and Spain’s greatest musical export. Throughout his 50-year career, he performed and recorded with musical legends such as Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana, and had a revolutionary influence on flamenco music both as a composer and musician.
While his unexpected passing in 2014 seemed to mark the end of his group – it, thankfully, did not. Limón, a long-time collaborator and producer of Paco de Lucía, uses the secrets of flamenco to create an experience that not only honours his legacy, but also paves a new path for the future of the art form.
