Last year, in tribute to the maestro, Limón produced an acclaimed film about Paco de Lucía’s guitar, La Guitarra Vuela (The Flight of the Guitar: Dreaming of Paco de Lucia). This film ignited the passion to create this tour, visiting Miami’s historic gem on Sunday October 29. The Coral Gables Art Cinema will be screening the film Saturday, 9/23 through Monday, 9/25.

Paco de Lucía was widely considered to be the world’s premier flamenco guitarist and by many to be Spain’s greatest musical export. He has had a revolutionary influence on flamenco music both as a composer and otherwise. His influence on flamenco guitar has been compared with that of Andrés Segovia’s on classical guitar. Throughout his 50 year career, he performed and recorded with musical legends such as Eric Clapton, Chick Corea, Carlos Santana and Al Di Meola among many others. When he died unexpectedly in 2014, he was enjoying a new round of creative inspiration and acclaim.
