Blending the sensual sounds of flamenco with modern influences from rock, pop and jazz, renowned nouveau flamenco guitarist Ottmar Liebert has created a sound with a wide appeal. He and his band Luna Negra perform live at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland, showcasing his philosophy that flamenco is as much an attitude as a genre of music. His engaging mix of flamenco guitar, South American percussion and other musical genres has earned Liebert five Grammy nominations and 38 gold and platinum record certifications in the USA, plus more awards around the world. A true romantic, Liebert never fails to win over the crowd with his passionate playing and memorable melodies. Learn More
