Flamenco guitar icon, Paco de Lucia, one of the finest guitarists in the world, is returning to the United States for a rare tour of select cities, starting with Miami Beach. He brings his ensemble of Spain’s finest musicians and dancers. Paco’s newest CD and DVD features a triumphant live recording in Spain last year.
Buika, the unforgettable Afro-Spanish singer, jumps from the screen in Almodovar’s 2011 hit film The Skin I Live In, to a live concert with her ensemble. Her latest work continues to explore the sublime fusion between flamenco, rumba, jazz and soul – with a dose of classic jazz stylings and the American songbook.
These two nights of fine music from Spain are presented with support from TVE and Dish Latino. Season support is received from the City of Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council, Miami Dade Department of Cultural Affairs and Miami Magazine.
