Rycardo Moreno, a noted flamenco and jazz guitarist born in Lebrija into a Gypsy family, returns to New York with his recent show, A Galeano, a tribute to Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano from his book Libro de los Abrazos (The Book of Hugs). According to Moreno, the book “was impregnated with music and you just had to decipher it.” Ten of Galeano’s stories are connected through music, evoking flamenco expressions of the people. Moreno’s career has included collaborations with Dorantes, Esperanza Fernández, Buika, and El Lebrijano. Accompaniment on vocals (Lela Soto), and guitar and palmas (Dani Bonilla).
This concert is part of the series Flamenco Eñe organized by Fundación SGAE.
