Monteverde, Ignacio Lusardi; Carmona, Abraham; Schimpelsberger, Bernhard; Glasser, Adam

This latest album by Ignacio Lusardi Monteverde unearths the historical influences and musical interactions of various cultures, and their effects on the numerous toques heard in flamenco today. Within his own avant-garde compositions, inspired by his travels around the Andalusian provinces, India and the Middle-East, Ignacio embraces the original modes, melodic phrases, specific tempos and rhythms that have been developed and passed down over the centuries. “Ignacio’s willingness to explore out of his comfort zone and reach out to other cultures speaks to his character.” (Phil Manzanera, Roxy Music)
