Encuentros Del Alma
Born to a family of great gypsy guitarists, Chuscales (his nickname refers to a person who is a 'guitar cruncher', extremely substantial - the best) joins forces on "Encuentros Del Alma" with popular flamenco aritsts and producers to bridge traditional and new flamenco styles. Co-producer and noteworthy guitarist Ottmar Liebert remarks, "Chuscales was born a Flamenco, and he lives and breathes Flamenco - but this time he wanted to make a crossover album, a fusion album, and I am honored that he came to me for help. I think you will enjoy Chusco's compositions and guitar playing as well as the setting we created for him." Chuscales was raised in Granada, Spain and was schooled in the Gitano flamenco traditions by his father and grandfather, as well as by friends and mentors Paco de Lucia, Sabicas and Manolo San Lucas.
