24 Mar Paco de Amparo: Soleá, Seguiriya y Bulería!
As you probably know, on each edition we invite a figure of flamenco guitar. This year we were particularly lucky to count on maestro Paco de Amparo, the best ambassador of Morón´s talent. He inherited this talent from his uncle, Diego del Gastor, who delighted the audience with soleás, seguiriyas and bulerías, which we are bringing to you now as a premiere for your enjoyment.
Francisco Zambrana Torres, a gipsy guitarist, also known as PACO DE AMPARO in the flamenco guitar world, was born in Morón de la Frontera (Cádiz) in 1969. He is part of a family with a long tradition of flamenco guitarists: Grandnephew of the legendary Diego del Gastor, grandson of Luis Torres Cádiz´s and Joselero de Morón, and also nephew of Diego de Morón and Andorrano.
Paco de Amparo is indeed one of the ambassadors of Moron´s playing, a very particular one, rhythmically speaking. The strumming, along with the Hammer-ons and pull-offs are especially relevant, creating tunes and harmonies which can make the most reserved audience really excited.
