Chicuelo and Mezquida made a surprising move last year with the release of their first collaborative album Conéxion. Accompanied by percussion only, they gave room to all aspects of each other’s playing. Barcelona is a major source of inspiration, as a Mediterranean metropolis and meeting point of many cultures.
‘Chicuelo’ Juan Gómez is currently considered a major innovator of the flamenco guitar, following in the footsteps of the legendary Paco de Lucía. His talent as a composer and songwriter has been awarded with a prestigious Goya Award. Now he will join forces with another great musician from Catalunya, pianist Marco Mezquida, who makes a logical connection between jazz, classical music and flamenco. He has already recorded more than forty albums, of which ten as a band leader and composer.
