Goodbye Paco/Adios Maestro!

Posted on Apr 15, 2014

I caught the news on Facebook was confirmed on the web…the maestro of flamenco guitar…the legendary Paco De Lucia died today.  Memories of seeing him in concert…in the film “Carmen”…on CD and album covers….on You Tube.  His technique was fast as lightning…an incredible virtuoso who innovated the music with the inclusion of cajon…who jammed and toured with John MacLaughlin and Al DiMeola…breaking down barriers…who fused flamenco with other genres of music.  Now Paco has joined the ancestors, leaving behind a legacy of greatness for us to treasure, revisit and discover again.  Adios Maestro!
