Guitarist and composer Ottmar Liebert has become one of the most successful instrumentalists of the past decade, blending flamenco guitar with South American percussion, rock, jazz, and pop influences to create "nouveau flamenco."
The success of Ottmar Liebert's groundbreaking 1990 debut album Nouveau Flamenco, including the single "Barcelona Nights," catapulted him to the top of Billboard's new age chart and took the world by storm. With more than 25 recordings under his belt (the most recent being 2012's Dune), Liebert has created a vast catalog, all bearing his supremely passionate compositional style--mixing sensual melodies with pan-Latin rhythms. The German-born guitarist has been nominated five times for a Grammy, and his records have gone on to reach platinum and multi-platinum sales. Along with his group Luna Negra, Liebert has carved a unique space in instrumental new age music, while redefining what most think of as flamenco.
"...sweet melody and tango feel...beautifully composed and recorded in the Santa Fe desert style as defined by Ottmar Liebert." Lawrence Russell
