Spanish guitarist Paco Lara will inspire and capture the imagination of Australian audiences.

Bringing the soul and spirit of Spanish flamenco to regional audiences in a tour through NSW and around Australia from November 2022, acclaimed Spanish guitarist Paco Lara will inspire and capture the imagination of Australian audiences. With the release and launch of his new album, Duende – a repertoire of original compositions – Lara has also produced and presented a stunning live performance with his talented ensemble, fusing music, song and dance as only flamenco can do.

Lara migrated to Australia in 2017 from his home in Jerez in Southern Spain – the heartland of flamenco. Lara has toured internationally, alongside some of the best artists and maestro legends of flamenco in Spain and has become a vanguard and foremost musician of contemporary flamenco fusion in Australia. Lara’s increasing popularity in Australia has contributed to the growing interest and understanding of its traditions and contemporary flamenco performance.

This live performance brings together an international musical collaboration with a unique mix of Spanish and Australian musicians. Lara’s ongoing passion for presenting high quality flamenco music to Australia, and sharing his music with global and cultural connections, will ignite your musical senses.

Paco Lara will be performing Duende at the Byron Theatre on Saturday 26 November at 8pm. Tickets byroncentre.com.au/whats-on
