Tuesday AT 7:30 PM
Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra
Montalvo Arts Center
“Beautifully haunting” —Guitar Magazine
As Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling guitarist Ottmar Liebert has said, “flamenco is a music both romantic and dangerous; it is an attitude as much as it is a musical genre.”
Liebert is renowned for harnessing the emotional fire and mournful tonalities of traditional flamenco music, updating it with the subtle rhythms of jazz, making it accessible with the melodic song structures of pop–and animating it with a spark of musical genius.
Backed by his band Luna Negra, he will demonstrate why he is hailed as a pioneer of the Nouveau Flamenco style.
