Hailed by the Guardian for his “exquisite guitar playing”, the formidable virtuoso Eduardo Niebla presents his amazing repertoire of “stunning flamenco jazz”. A master of today’s generation Eduardo has traversed the worlds of jazz, classical, world and pop music, collaborating with such diverse partners as Craig David, Juno Reactor, sitar maestro Nishat Khan, Lol Coxhill (sax) and the Dante String Quartet.
Eduardo’s concert appearances have included the Cairo & Tbilisi International Jazz Festivals, the Jaipur Festival India, the Queen Elizabeth Hall London, the Odessa Jazz Carnival, the Olympic Games Greece, the San Isidro Fiesta Madrid, Celtic Connections Glasgow and Glastonbury, as well as concert tours to Europe, the Baltic States, the Middle East and South Africa.
It’s a journey that has led to many collaborations with artists across the globe including Indian maestros Nishat & Wajahat Khan (sitar, sarod), Deepak Ram (bamboo flute) Kala Ramnath (Indian violin), Purbayan Chatterjee (sitar), as well as flamenco bass player Carles Benavent, Salvador Niebla (drums), the spiritual gypsy singer and percussionist Paban Das Baul, Palestinian oud player Adel Salameh, trance phenomenon Juno Reactor, the Dante String Quartet, Lol Coxhill (sax) and pop musicians George Michael and Craig David.
A spellbinding evening of passion, verve and fleet-fingered virtuosity from one of the most potent forces in flamenco jazz fusion.
