The world lost one of flamenco music’s greatest guitarists and composers when Paco de Lucía died unexpectedly in 2014. The Spaniard was one of the most important innovators in the genre and he left behind a wealth of songs which continue to influence many musicians and deeply touch fans. Beyond The Memory celebrates the life of this legendary giant of the guitar. This tribute concert takes listeners on a journey through four decades of de Lucia’s musical life. Beautiful songs like Entre Dos Aguas, Zyryab, Solo Quiero Caminar and many more are performed by musicians from different generations who played in de Lucía’s famous septets. The tribute is not limited to music alone: it also features song and dance, and clips from the documentary La Busqueda, made by de Lucía’s son Curro. Beyond The Memory allows the audience to experience once again the rich legacy of this extraordinary artist.
