Vicente Amigo

Andalusian guitarist Vicente Amigo began his studies at age eight with Spain’s great flamenco guitar maestros, eventually apprenticing with virtuoso guitarist and composer Manolo Sanlúcar, on whose masterpiece album, Tauromagia, Amigo performed. Amigo quickly set off on a solo career, with decades of solo performances and collaborations with artists across the musical spectrum earning him a Latin Grammy Award and continual praise for his elegant, melodic interpretations of the flamenco canon, for his exploration of pop-flamenco fusion, and for his own transcendent compositions. At ELLNORA, Amigo will be joined by a flamenco ensemble including a vocalist and dancer.
