Latin Grammy Award-winning Flamenco composer and virtuoso guitarist, Vicente Amigo, known as one of the most dazzling Flamenco guitarists of his generation, returns to Los Angeles for one-night only at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, September 20 at 8:00 p.m. Hailing from Córdoba, Spain, Amigo has toured the world receiving many of Spain’s most important awards and honors and is highly respected and admired for his artistic thirst and capacity for innovation and renovation.
Amigo’s litany of international accolade includes a Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Album (2001), being named Best Guitar Player by Guitar Player Magazine (1993), and winning First Prize at the Flamenco Guitar International Contest (Badajoz 1988). He was nominated for two more Latin Grammy’s in 2006 and 2013 (each for Best Flamenco Album), and won the “Patriarch of Flamenco” Award at the 2010 Flamenco Summit.
Guitar Player Magazine has named Amigo the “Best international Flamenco guitarist,” while Pat Metheny has called Amigo "The greatest guitarist alive.” “Somewhere between poetry and commercial stardom, [Vicente Amigo] represents a new generation of flamenco artists,” according to All About Jazz.
Performing in Amigo’s band are Rafael de Utrera, Vocals; Paquito Gonzalez, Cajón; Añil Fernandez, Second Guitar; Ewen Vernal, Bass; and dancer "El Choro", Antonio Molina.
Amigo’s recording career over the last 30 years is no less impressive, releasing eight albums each embraced by the public and critics, selling hundreds of thousands of units worldwide: De mi Corazón al Aire (1991),Vivencias Imaginadas (1995), Poeta (1997), Latin Grammy-winning Ciudad de las Ideas (2000), Latin Grammy-nominated Un momento en el Sonido (2005), Paseo de Gracia (2009). Tierra (2013 Sony/BMG) emerged as Amigo’s most innovative and global release to date, was nominated for 2013 Latin Grammy. As his eighth studio record, Memoria de los Sentidos (2017 Sony/Legacy), Vicente Amigo is back to his traditional flamenco roots. In this album he has gathered the top active flamenco artists, as Potito, El Pele, Miguel Poveda, Pedro el Granaino, Niña Pastori and even Farruquito, with his incredible dance and “zapateao” on Vicente´s buleria.
Vicente Amigo has also collaborated with José Mercé, Camarón, Sting, Alejandro Sanz, Rosario, Carmen Linares, Manolo Sanlúcar, Khaled and Miguel Bosé, and boasts live performances with John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Milton Nascimento. He continues performing to audiences around the world including Argentina, Columbia, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Canada and the United States.
Tickets start at $25, and are available online at www.laflamencofestival.com or at the venue on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center is located at 1935 Manhattan Beach Blvd. in Redondo Beach, California 90278.
