Ottmar Liebert, renowned nouveau flamenco guitarist, and his band Luna Negra perform live at Harlow's. The five-time Grammy nominee has released 25 albums, earning 38 gold and platinum certifications in the USA, plus more awards around the world. His debut, 1990's double-platinum Nouveau Flamenco, is one of the best-selling guitar albums ever -- pretty impressive for a man who, up to that point, had worked a series of odd jobs, including dishwasher, bike messenger, truck driver and bank teller.

Although _La Semana _is the first Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra album with all-new songs in five years, the multi-faceted, Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling guitarist has been his usual prolific self, writing, drawing, touring and exploring, his myriad experiences informing the 13 evocative instrumental compositions on La Semana.
Like his music, Liebert is respectful, creative and open-minded; a thoughtful artist who likes to begin albums with a concept and structure, even if it’s an untraditional one. But he’s also intuitive and open enough to let the music decide what it wants to become. Thus, the more than an hours worth of songs on La Semana began with a firm direction, though ultimately the record found a different path to completion. “I usually start with a title before I start an album,” Liebert explains. “The title decides what the palette will be; what sounds I’m going to use. It’s very important for me to set certain limits. Will it be a color album or black and white? To me, La Semana is a drawing. As such, musically the record is back to basics with the wooden box drum used in flamenco, the clapping, and the palmas. It’s all one acoustic guitar, no electric, no lutes, no steel string guitars.”
