Vicente Amigo has just released a video of the single he’s released of his upcoming CD ‘Tierra’, which will be released in February. It’s not your typical flamenco video, by a long shot. But I love that he chose to play his new Graciliano Perez guitar in the video – it’s a rosewood and cedar flamenco guitar that he picked up from Graciliano in 2012 and used it right away to record four or five of the tracks of his new CD (which features Mark Knopfler, among other great players). Based on this track I’m very curious to hear the rest of the album, and I hope it brings Graciliano Perez some of the recognition that I think he deserves.
There was no way to embed the video (at least not that I could figure out), so click here to see the video on the El Pais website. I’ll be curious to hear everyone’s reaction.
