23 Jun “SOLEÁ P’A MI COMPADRE”, the third track of Jerónimo Maya´s latest album with Solera Flamenca RECORDS
In this new track, we see a Jerónimo brimming with personality and wisdom, with a very deep melodic discourse and an ability to express beyond imagination. ‘SOLEÁ P’A MI COMPADRE’ is the first track that we present without percussion; a guitar solo that brings to light the greatness of this guitar genius. In short, it’s a gift for the soul of all flamenco guitar fans… THANK YOU MY JERO!
As we have been announcing for the last few weeks, we have started a brand new project: Solera Flamenca RECORDS (READ NEWS). A project for which we would very much like to have a big premiere, with the production of an album by Jerónimo Maya.
This new album means turning back to the purest essence, back to basics, where we will enjoy the guitar of this genius, with the only percussion of knuckles. An album where the maestro´s musical truth and greatness is exposed, bare, without any accessories or musical arrangements whatsoever.
Once all the tunes are presented, the physical album (“CD”) will be released in audiovisual format, and these tunes will be presented in Barcelona, on December 2022, within the frame of the “De Cajón” Festival, organized by the firm “THE PROJECT”, a show which will count on the participation of great artists, such as Juan Mateo (percussion and knuckle-tapping), Pepe de Pura (singing and clapping), and the special collaboration of a guest artist: Karime Amaya (dancing).
“PUREZA Y SOLERA” is an unprecedented fresh musical proposal in which we find a highly influential Jerónimo, musically speaking. He is, at the same time, amusing and fun, but also harmonically complex and technically superb, as expected from him.
There is no doubt Jerónimo has reached something else by composing “PUREZA Y SOLERA”: musical maturity, that degree of knowledge, expression and communicative skill which all allow him to directly connect with the heart and soul of his audience.
