Jazz in the grove

antonio serrano 1

The internationally celebrated Antonio Serrano Quartet makes its debut in Cyprus this June, in a concert organised by the Pharos Arts Foundation, in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain. Mark your calendars for June 18 at the Olive Grove, in Delikipos!

Grammy award winning artist Antonio Serrano has been hailed as one of the great geniuses of Spanish music, and is considered one of the most important harmonica players of all time. He has become a reference point for Spanish jazz and one of the most highly acclaimed musicians in the world.

Serrano’s enormous versatility is reflected in the long list of collaborations with major international artists, and in the effortlessness with which he moves in musical fields as distant from each other as jazz, flamenco, tango and classical music. He has made a hugely important contribution to Spanish music by introducing the harmonica into flamenco, and further consolidated this innovation as a key member of Paco de Lucia’s group for ten years.

For his concert in Cyprus, at the Pharos Arts Foundation’s open-air venue, The Olive Grove in Delikipos, Serrano will join forces with Antonio de Miguel (double-bass), Pablo Gutierrez (piano) and Esteve Pi (drums), for a fascinating musical experience with excerpts from two of the Quartet’s latest projects: Tootsology – a celebration of the legendary Toots Thielemans, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, and Clazzical – an innovative fusion of the great melodies of classical music and the daring harmonies and rhythms of jazz.
