Artist feature 2013:
  • PACO DE LUCIA & BAND ‘En Vivo’
    Performance: June 6 – Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels
    • Paco de Lucia is one of the world’s greatest guitarists, as well as the most innovative and influential flamenco artist of the last thirty years. We’re extremely proud to welcome the Flamenco God par excellence in Brussels to present his amazing new show ‘EnVivo’. He will be performing together with his band of guitarist Antonio Sánchez, percussionist Piraña, bassist Alain Pérez, singers David de Jacoba and Rubio, harmonica player Antonio Serrano, all eminently up to de Lucía’s notoriously high standards. One of the highlights of the show is when the incredible dancer Farruco hits the stage. Expect a warm and incredible evening that brings the beautiful Spanish musical culture to Belgium. A unique moment for all flamenco fans out there!
