Alfredo Lagos on “Sonanta Club”:
My path is still searched every day, like that of almost all musicians who feel truly committed to their work. I also have clear, that although I’m on the path of flamenco, because it is what I heard, enjoyed, sucked, since I was born, I do not want, nor in my opinion, I must, give up sounding from other points of view. I like, and I enjoy, jazz, tango, latin music, bossa nova, classical, manouche, among other styles, and now, I feel at the moment of offering my version on these other musics. From this record and concert, I want to tell other different things about previous works. ‘Sonanta Club’ is a song of love for the guitar, where I want to remember great musicians, whom I humbly pretend to approach and reach out to. With the soul in my stick pegs, the staff and the cousin.
