Paco de Lucía and the Americas an International Symposium


Tuesday, Mar 7, 2023. 10:00am-6:00pm

The Segal Theater

Join musicians and scholars from around the world to honor and celebrate the remarkable artistry of Paco de Lucía. Marking the 10th anniversary of de Lucía’s death, this conference explores the influence of the flamenco guitar virtuoso, composer, and producer on the Americas, as well as the Americas’ influence on him. Paco de Lucía (1947-2014) was a giant as a guitar innovator, his music transcending and transforming genres. His unique fusions of Spanish musical idioms with North American, Caribbean, and Latin American genres continue to influence classical, flamenco, jazz, pop, and world music today. This conference investigates de Lucia’s antecedents and honors his legacy.


Presented by the Foundation for Iberian Music at the Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation, CUNY Graduate Center. Part of Flamenco Festival NY. Made possible by support from the Elebash Global Voices Fund.
