The live presentation of Amigo’s recording “Paseo de Gracia” kicks off this series of shows that continues through February 19th at Sadler’s Wells.
Today begins the ninth editiion of the London Flamenco Festival, a program that will continue through February 19th, and which includes artists Manuela Carrasco, Compañía Olga Pericet, Carmen Cortés, Rafaela Carrasco, Gerardo Núñez, Compañía Antonio Gades, Rafael Amargo, José Mercé and La Shica.
But the person in charge of opening the series tonight at Sadler’s Wells is Vicente Amigo, the Seville guitarist with the Cordoban heart who will bring his most recent recorded work, Paseo de Gracia, to life. Amigo has played for Camarón, Sting, Alejandro Sanza, Rosario, Manolo Sanlúcar, Khaled and Miguel Bosé and shared the stage with John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Milton Nascimento among many others. In 1992 he took part in the concert Leyendas de Guitarra in Seville, along with Paco de Lucía, Keith Richards and Bob Dylan. Since the release of his first record in 1991, Vicente Amigo has been considered one of the great creators of flamenco guitar, and his career has been on a constant upward-moving path with the most recent result being his much-awaited work Paseo de Gracia which marks the creative highpoint of this Andalusian musician.
