Album released by Spanish guitarist Carlos Heredia as soloist. For many years he accompanied singing and dancing for many flamenco artists before recording this work with ten items of his own creation. Carlos is accompanied by Michael Kiaer (bass), Jason McGuire (drawer and guitar), vocals by Fermín Carmona and four members in chorus and clapping. Heredia is a guitarist who mixes classical and modern flamenco in line with current trends, giving power and emotion to his guitar.
140 voicings & 10 picking patterns of the gypsy guitar masters Derived from Spanish mythology, the term ’duende’ refers to a heightened state of emotion in response to a piece of art or music. “El duende is the spirit of evocation. It is what gives you chills, makes you smile or cry as a bodily reaction to an artistic performance that is particularly expressive.”
New version of the Paco de Lucía Integral, 27 CDs his complete work remastered. "Cositas Buenas", his last album, comes as a new in this new Integral. Now in a new economic format. This collection is a unique tour of the work of Paco de Lucia from 1964 to 2004. Paco de Lucía wanted to highlight his capacity as both composer and interpreter in this 1972 album, evoking with the title the duende —the name Flamenco artists give to the power that comes from within. There are ten extraordinary tracks, some with orchestral arrangements by Paco and Torregrosan —transcriber of the score for Paco de Lucía's work in the early years of his career—, here responsible for the musical direction and the arrangements. For the first time the sound engineer is credited: José Díaz Auñón. The inclusion of an orchestra was at Paco’s own request, although it seemed he wasn’t totally satisfied with the results.
