Barocco Foundation presents brilliant flamenco guitarist Alejandro de Chacón who will be performing during the weekly lunchtime concerts held at St. Catherine of Italy, Valletta this coming Tuesday March 3.

Emerging from the folkloristic music traditions of Andalusia in southern Spain, Flamenco music is a professionalized art-form. Alejandro will be performing a number of popular flamenco guitar styles of music which are named generally according to their derivation, namely Romance Anónimo, Solea, Taranta, Minera, Alegría, Granaina and Buleria. 

Alejandro started his career at the tender age of 9 in the hands of Maestro Juan Mesa where he made him understand the forms and nature of the Flamenco guitar.  Over the time, Alejandro continued to develop as he learned from Andalusian and foreign musicians. Through the International Guitar Festival of Cordoba he met and learned from great masters such as Manolo, Sanlucar, Ralph Towner, Sabas de Hoces and Larry Coriel.  Alejandro also had the opportunity to accompany famous flamenco singers throughout Andalusia.  Today he continues to study, listen and creating to this universal world of flamenco.

Flamboyant Flamenco lunchtime concert will be held at St. Catherine of Italy, Valletta on Tuesday March 3 at 12:30 pm.  Entrance is at a suggested donation of 8. Tickets available prior to the concert from the venue itself or by email: baroccomalta@gmail.com  or phone 79680952. For information visit www.barocco-malta.com
