This is a unique concert by Spain-based flamenco guitarist Alfredo Lagos and New York City-based flamenco singer Barbara Martinez. Doors open at 7pm, concert is from 8-9pm. Alfredo Lagos was born in Jerez de la Frontera in 1971, a time when Paco de Lucía had only begun to revolutionize flamenco guitar. A few years later, the new concepts developed by the guitarist from Algeciras had inspired hundreds of young potential maestros, and contributed to triggering an unprecedented interest in the genre. Lagos belongs to that generation, no question about it, but he has managed to stand out from the crowd. Long years playing for the best dancers and singers, from Sara Baras, Manuela Carrasco, Manolete, José Mercé, Capullo and Estrella Morente among others, to Israel Galván and Fernando Terremoto, have given him knowledge, dimension and an open-minded approach. His is a contemporary perspective based on the most classic Jerez-style flamenco.
