The Paco de Lucia Project

Paco de Lucia's band preserves the sound that its leader carefully crafted while he toured the world for decades.  This new project carries the strength, sound and feel of that band but includes new repertoire that showcases the boundless talent of each of the musicians.  In this All-Star lineup, the guitar, dance, cajón, voice, and improvisation take center stage.
