Guitarra Azul CD Release “Lotus Flower” (Rumba Flamenco and Latin Jazz with many international influences)
Guitarra Azul is World Class Musicianship, Spirited Dance, Irresistable Rhythm, Unforgetable Melodies, A Sensual, Smoldering Performance of inspired Music and Dance. The all-original music of Guitarra Azul is hard to compartmentalize, but perhaps is best described as Rumba Flamenco and Latin Jazz with many international influences. Rumba Flamenco retains the heart of more traditional Spanish flamenco music, the flamenco guitar, yet shows a world influence by adding the use of bass, drums, and a variety of percussion instruments. Incorporating elements of flamenco guitar, Latin, Indian, and Arabic classical percussion, and some funky American bass make for a true international/multi-cultural mix.
