Nuevo Flamenco / New Fusion Flamenco guitar recommendations

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

The following are my personal favorite artists:

 

Ottmar Liebert,

Armik,

Govi,

Paco De Lucia,

Jesse Cook,

Johannes Linstead,

Luis Villegas,

Nocy,

NovaMenco,
Oscar Lopez,

Willie & Lobo

 

 

Personally, I prefer more a melodious style than an ultra fast / technical style. However, please feel free to recommend whatever guitar music that: 1) sounds good to your ears; and 2) has a similar style to the above listed artists.

 

I use the term “Nuevo Flamenco guitar” liberally and loosely here. The "fusion" component of Nuevo Flamenco guitar may come from lots of other genres, including but not limited to Jazz, rumba, bossa nova, Gypsy, Latin, Celtic, Middle Eastern, Rock, Jazz, Cuban Swing, Tango and Salsa. Let us be liberal with genre categorization here.

 

Thank you for reading / contributing to this thread.

Perhaps you'd be interested in two easily available albums by Gino d'Auri, Flamenco Mystico and Flameco - Passion and Soul.  Both the playing and the recording are -- as the label name -- First Class.  And then there are a number of great musicians on the label Alula Records, such as Gerardo Nunez De Madera

Great to hear about your recommendations again, FalconP. Top shelf picks, as always!

I have listened to all the artists / albums that your listed. Of those, I like Flamenco Mystico from Gino d'Auri the most (yes, recording quality is great as well).

700

 

 

De Madera's Aire Y Candela is slight faster than what I am used to, but still a very enjoyable and interesting listen.

Haha great! I love this genre! Oscar Lopez is my favourite from the bunch zzffnn mentioned, but I particularly like Jesse Cook's music. Mario Takes a Walk, Falling from Grace, Air, Gipsy, and so on.

Thanks for your comment, Arkyle. Please feel free to recommend more artists.
I like Jesse Cook's slower albums such as "Frontiers".

How about Flamenco Piano:

Diego Amador: Piano Jondo

 

May be a bit too fast and technical for your taste, but the playing is breathtaking.

 

And you might enjoy Chris Spheeris. He is more new age and world fusion than Flamenco, but his guitar style is slow and melodic.

Thanks for reminding me of Chris Spheeris. I have had his Dancing with the Muse album for a while and like it. Yeah, more world fusion than flamenco. But it sounds good!

Diego Amador is too fast for me. I guess hardcore flamenco fans may appreciate his music more than I do. That was my first time to hear about flamenco piano! Interesting!

You might enjoy Sean Harkness and Eric Hansen...Both are more modern styles with Flamenco influences.

Yes, I like both of them! I just listened to them at MOG Internet radio. Thanks a lot!
