Sabicas, el Maestro que nos formó a distancia
José Manuel Gamboa
José Manuel Gamboa (Madrid, 1959) defines himself as multi-talented flamenco or flamenkoloko* (*n.t.: playing with words flamenco and crazy). After his work as guitar player, he has been responsible for the flamenco news in several national newspapers (Diario 16, La Razón, El País), in radio stations (Onda Madrid, Cadena Ser, Onda Cero, etc) and in television (TVE), and he was also scriptwriter and co-director of the documentary “La luz del flamenco” (The Light of Flamenco), presented by Paco Rabal. As music producer, he has worked with Carmen Linares, Enrique Morente, Gerardo Núñez, Rafael Riqueni or Pitingo, and he has also worked with F. Núñez in the comprehensive recordings of Camarón, Paco de Lucía or the “Enciclopedia de los estilos flamencos A-Z (2007)” (Encyclopedia of flamenco styles A-Z – 2007).
With over 30 published books and hundreds of records, he is one of the unavoidable references in current flamenco research.
At Flamenco on Fire he will deliver the lecture “Sabicas, el Maestro que nos formó a distancia,” (Sabicas, the maestro who taught us from the distance) based on the career of the genius guitarist from Navarra and his cultural advance of flamenco internationally.
