Paco De Lucia biography (bio):
Paco de Lucia in Algeciras, Spain, is recognized as a flamenco legend all over the world. He is a composer and guitarist, and leading proponent of the Modern Flamenco style. Not only skilled in flamenco, he is one of the very few flamenco guitarists who has also successfully crossed over into other genres of music, such as jazz, classical, and world music. He is the winner of the 2004 Prince of Asturias Awards in Arts, and is the uncle of Spanish pop singer Mal.
De Lucia was born Francisco Sanchez Gomez in Algeciras, a city in the province of Cadiz, at the southernmost tip of Spain and Europe, the youngest of five children. The son of flamenco guitarist Antonio Sanchez, and brother of flamenco singer Pepe de Lucia and flamenco guitarist Ramon de Algeciras, he adopted the stage name Paco de Lucia in honor of his Portuguese-born mother, Lucia Gomes.
In 1958, at age 11, de Lucia made his first public appearance on Radio Algeciras, and a year later he was awarded a special prize in the Jerez flamenco competition. In 1961, he toured with the flamenco troupe of dancer Jose Greco. Between 1968 and 1977, he enjoyed a fruitful collaboration with fellow New Flamenco innovator Camaron de la Isla. The two recorded 10 albums together.
In 1979, de Lucia, John McLaughlin and Larry Coryell formed "The Guitar Trio" and together made a brief tour of Europe and released a video recorded at London's Royal Albert Hall entitled "Meeting of Spirits". Coryell was later replaced by Al Di Meola, and since 1981, the trio have recorded three albums under that line-up. His own band, the Paco de Lucia Sextet (which includes his brothers Ramon and Pepe) released the first of their three albums that same year. He has released several albums encompassing both traditional and modern flamenco styles. Through his wide discography he has given rise to a new way of understanding flamenco and has launched his music and his instrument to a level superior to modern jazz performers. It's difficult to compare anyone to Paco de Lucia in terms of technique. The University of Cadiz recognized de Lucia's musical and cultural contributions by conferring on him the title of Doctor Honoris Causa on March 23, 2007.
De Lucia is considered a master of rasgueados and picados and is capable of playing with blinding speed on the nylon string guitar.
Until asked to perform and interpret Joaquin Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez in 1991, de Lucia was not proficient at reading musical notation. As a flamenco guitarist, de Lucia claimed in Paco de Lucia-Light and Shade: A Portrait, he gave greater emphasis to rhythmical accuracy in his interpretation of the Concierto at the expense of the perfect tone preferred by classical guitarists. Joaquin Rodrigo declared that no one had ever played his composition in such a brilliant manner.
