โ–ช๏ธย Lara, based in Australia since 2017, was inspired to produce his dream project, DUENDE, bringing to life his original music compositions and music created by great composers such as Jose Maria Cano, Concha Buika and Luis Bonfa. This together combines the unmistakable sound of Laraโ€™s hometown, Jerez in Andalusia Spain, the heartland of traditional flamenco and culture.
Paco Laraโ€™s recent successes include the Andalusian Guitar Show at the Sydney Opera House and Adelaide Guitar Festival in 2021 and 2023 and his 2022-23 national tour.
Australian audiences will be once again captivated by his unique style from Jerez which brings a fusion of contemporary flamenco music with hints of jazz in this new performance.
Virtuoso flamenco guitarist, Lara has toured internationally alongside some of Spainโ€™s well-known artists, composers and maestros of flamenco in Spain, such as the Maestro Paco Cepero (guitarist and composer), Mercedes Ruiz (dancer) and Isabel Pantoja (vocalist).
In Spain, Lara also has been at the vanguard of the Flamenco Fusion musical style, with hugely successful groups such as Los Delinquents, El Bario and Isabel Pantoja.
