Track 5 of the album "One Summer Night" (1984)
The "One Summer Night" album is one of the most important in flamenco history because of the innovations showed by Paco de Lucía. This was the first time in which a sextet played flamenco with "foreign" instruments included, like electric bass and cajon. There are other innovations in this album as well, the ones concerning the structure or the musica pieces and the ones using a very beautiful and complex modern musical harmony and rhythms between others.
This is a must for all flamenco lovers!
2) Miguel Flores Trío (Alegrías)
This is the newest flamenco project of one of my students Miguel Flores. I'm very happy for him! Enjoy it!
