Shiro Otake conmemorates García Lorca

Japanese guitarist Shiro Otake premieres his new composition “La Guitarra” which commemorates the 80 years from the death of Federico Garcia Lorca.

Shiro Otake –known in Spain as Shiro el Arriero– was born in Tokyo, Japan. At the age of thirteen, he became fascinated by the music of renowned Argentine folklorist, Atahualpa Yupanqui (1908-1992.) He studied classical guitar with Iwao Suzuki, and learned Yupanqui’s vast repertories.

He brings his new Spanish guitar sound called “Iberoamericana,” a crossover between the Andalusian duende and Argentinian saudade.
