The fusion of traditional flamenco with modern influences is at the heart and soul of Gabriella, a vibrant original work by Miguel Espinoza’s Fusion. Miguel is a renowned Spanish flamenco guitarist who has dedicated his life to mastering the art of flamenco guitar. Born in Cartagena, Spain, Miguel is one of the most respected flamenco guitarists in the world. Gabriella celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Andalusia, Spain, in this original modern work featuring spectacular percussion and gorgeous cello seasoned with Howard Levy’s (Béla Fleck) harmonica and David Balakrishnan’s (Turtle Island Quartet) violin. Recorded in pure DSD256 at Octave Studios, the sound, and music come alive as never before.
Miguel Espinoza is hailed as one of the best flamenco guitarists in the world. Described by Guitar Player Magazine as “mesmerizing”, Miguel is much more than a virtuoso technician. Whether his lightening-fast fingers are skittering across the fretboard, fluttering over the sound hole like percussive hummingbird wings, or skillfully drawing achingly beautiful melodies out of the strings, Miguel’s award-winning compositions create an exotic, intoxicating musical elixir of flamenco fusion-one that is as sonically exciting as it is emotionally moving.
