Acclaimed Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco Lara, who boasts a distinguished career in Europe and Australia, launches his first solo album “THE ANDALUSIAN GUITAR“ - featuring some of the finest musicians from Spain and Australia. Embodying the unmistakeable Jerez style of flamenco guitar playing, PACO LARA presents flamenco guitar in all its authenticity, culture, and artistry. Expect impressive articulation with musical elegance and imagination.


”the music, beyond being exceptionally well played, is always pretty and eminently approachable – a quality compounded by the choice of repertoire. 8/10 John Shand”


Interpretations of themes from The Andalusian Guitar and some of the greatest guitar classics of all time from composers including Paco de Lucía, John Williams, Joaquín Rodrigo, Chick Corea, will be performed with the characteristic and unmistakeable sound (“toque") of Jerez (Spain).


THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE NOT TO BE MISSED! You will be transported to Southern Spain captivated by the sound of his guitar, flamenco dance and his musicians.


Paco Lara has a professional career of more than 30 years playing alongside some of the leading Spanish artists. He has toured internationally alongside Maestro Paco Cepero (one of flamenco’s most legendary guitarists and composers), Mercedes Ruiz (dancer), and Isabel Pantoja. He has also been at the vanguard of Flamenco Fusion with hugely successful groups such as El Barrio and Los Delinquentes.
