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
Quotes & Highlights
“A folk-pop trio from Seattle, performs funny original songs whose exquisite musical detail and subtle needling wit attain a level of craft not often seen in pop.” —Stephen Holden, _The New York Times _
“The group has achieved an almost cult status … their music ranges from irreverent to ironic, from satirical to sad. And despite the folk tag, their music defies categorization as it incorporates elements of jazz, pop, Broadway, reggae and classical.” —Associated Press
“Singers Ratshin, O’Neill and Adler are pitch-perfect in their delivery of often complex harmonic arrangements. … The trio officially bills itself as a ‘folk’ outfit, but has none of the naiveté that label might suggest. These are nicely edgy, sour-sweet songs, written for grown-ups.” —Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
