Vicente Amigo 2018 U.S. tour in Austin

Vicente Amigo, one of the most dazzling Flamenco guitarists of his generation, presents his album “Memoria de los Sentidos” at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

Born in Guadalcanal, a small village in Seville, Spain, Vicente Amigo started studying guitar when he was eight with maestros such as El Merengue (Rafael Rodríguez Fernández) and El Tomate (Juan Muñoz Expósito). At age 15 he became an apprentice of the great Manolo Sanlúcar, in whose group he worked for several years. Amigo has gained an international reputation in his close collaborations with unforgettable masters Camarón de la Isla and Paco de Lucía, as well as musicians and composers from across the world.

A transcendent performer, composer and producer, Amigo burst onto the major stages of Flamenco while still a teenager. Since then, he has earned a shelf full of awards, including a Latin Grammy for Ciudad de Las Ideas (City of Ideas) in 2001. Four years after his last album, and recently awarded with the Gold Medal of the Fine Arts by the Spanish government, Amigo is back with his most traditional Flamenco album—the type of Flamenco which is felt and expressed by very few artists.
