Concept

Between 2006 and 2010, I was listening a lot to the albums of Paco de Lucia (Solo Quiero Caminar, Siroco, Zyryab, Lucia, Cositas Buenas, Live in America) and Vicente Amigo (Di Mi Corazon Al Aire, Vivencias Imaginadas, Cante). At the beginning of 2010, I started playing solo guitar for special events... this new focus on playing guitar/ chord melodies on my own, it created new ideas in my mind in terms of composition and arrangement. Having had time to absorb and digest the music I'd been listening to in those previous years, coherent ideas started to emerge for an album by the Spring of 2011.
