David Carmona Luis el Zambo
UN SUEÑO DE LOCURA Sep. Fri 21 | 19:00 | De 15,00€ a 20,00€ | BUY

I confess that I always liked the guitar of David Carmona, as of excellent condition I sensed his person. A handful of years have passed since I became aware of their work, and I have to say that from its entry, I believe that back in 2005, in the particular monastery of Liang Shan Po for flamingos, I mean the monastery of Liang Shan-Lúcar, where instead of monk Shaolin practitioner of Kung-Fu comes out the one that is worth and is delivered as a flamenco musician category, David Carmona has grown an enormity and, controlling mind and body, has curdled in proven concert. This seems to have confirmed the maturity of his wise teacher and guides the more than initiated Little Grasshopper of the Camino del Monte, if you allow me to make a play on words that suggests the grenadine grenadine of the disciple. Manolo Sanlúcar has endowed him with the values ​​and knowledge necessary to do good in the art world, and that is what our David Carmona Fernández is up to. Despite the handful of years of which I spoke before, a Chinese will sound all this to David, because he came to the world after a decade of television episodes starring David Carradine, the Hollywood alter-ego of Paco de Lucía. But David Carmona-yes, David, believe it-has something of that temperance that made popular the character of Kung Fu derived from his bonhomie and monastic being. And I’m not getting into a garden; nothing invented This was underlined by the preceptor Manolo Sanlúcar when necessary: ​​”Ours is carried forward only with a monastic delivery, where everything is given and the effort does not count, without expecting much more than the mere satisfaction of contributing an effort to Flamenco” . David Carmona knows a lot about it. For example, the enormous difficulty of being heard that a flamenco guitar soloist suffers in the country that invented it. He knows very well the courage that comes from taking a record forward … Fortunately, there are friends willing to lend a hand, physically and spiritually, to lift your spirits. Without having to refer only to the boobs of the Bo -Huye! -, in this installment -of surrendering body and soul and record delivery- we heard the beautiful echo of Estrella Morente, Arcángel and Carmen Molina. Calm and flamenco, David invites us to accompany him in the present interned by the deepest gaps he has discovered in silence, where we will encounter unfading gems by tarantas – “Obsession” -, or a sublime soleá with unexpected and just closure: There it remains said what he had to say. It offers marine joys for joys, and haunted shadows in that continuous searching. He gets so upbeat and so Andalusian by mixolidierías -Josú, the one that these Greeks formed! -, or, when there is a reason, to celebrate they play por bulerías or to shatter tangos. An album worthy of the best audience. It’s for you! Enjoy it without hurry.
