Flamenco Virtuoso: Vicente Amigo
Vicente Amigo has been called “the natural continuation of Paco de Lucia,” and indeed it was a television performance by the legendary flamenco master that inspired him as a child to visualize a career playing flamenco guitar. Amigo’s playing style combines the solea rhythm of puro flamenco with elements of buleria, bolero, rumba, tango and alegria. Among his awards are a Latin Grammy and Best Flamenco Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine, as well as the adoration of flamenco fans worldwide. In his Savannah debut, Vicente Amigo brings a powerhouse five-piece band with a singer and dancer that promises emotional peaks akin to those from past SMF flamenco shows by Tomatito, Estrella Morente, Noche Flamenca and Paco de Lucia.
