Luis de la Carrasca will unveil his new album “Baró Drom” on its release March 17, 2023 on Andalouse Alhambra / InOuïe Distribution. This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday April 13, 2023 at Studio de L’Ermitage (Paris).
« In response to my last album Gharnata, I have imagined and created personal compositions born from the deepest inspiration of my soul (…). I have always liked to allow my work to be filled with the “Duende’s power”, the magician of Flamenco Art (…). Without the “Duende” the magic does not work and the feelings are not the same. This requires a meticulous and deep work. In this “Baró Drom” (Gran Camino), I follow my sound exploration, keeping one foot in the traditions and the other one in the modern world. I link time, experiences as well as the desire of saying something fair and positive. Truths are not hidden in flamenco.
Every theme marks a stage and pays tribute to a trip lived with passion. Flamenco is life! »
