El lebrijano & Andalusi Orchestra of Tanger

El Lebrijano, Juan Peña Fernández bornt in 1941 in Lebrija is a well know cantaor (singer) of flamenco.

With a deep knowledge of orthodox singing, his artistic interests led him to seek  some innovations in Flamenco art, usually corseted by the immovable tradition that defend the purists.

In the “Encounters” disco joined the Andalusian Orchestra of Tanger (see the video), rediscovering the Arab roots of flamenco, and deepening in this via later with albums like “Casablanca” or “Open” where working with the Muslim violinist Faiçal.

Here with  Faiçal Kourrich. Dame la Libertad, amazing song.
