Amos Lora – Boy Wonder of The Flamenco Guitar

Here’s Amos Lora with a song entitled Entre dos aguas (Between Two Stools).

According to an article posted at actualidad.orange.es  ”several flamenco music experts have dubbed Amos as “The Boy Wonder of Flamenco  ‘or’ The dolphin Paco de Lucia. ‘

Amos Lora, who started playing at the age of three, has not only been  influenced by flamenco but also jazz musicians like Coltrain, Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny. In this video, I’m not really hearing any of the aforementioned influence, but the playing is very very good.

You can find out more info on his site http://www.arteemergente.com/inicio-home/biograf%C3%ADa/ but it is all in Spanish. Here’s a short excerpt:

He started playing guitar at age three, under the direction of his father Manuel Lora. From six years is also the teaching of the school of “Caño Roto” the hand of “The Entri”.
At age eight Tomatito know who from the start turns with the child and teaches its flourishes and its themes. From 2010 also receives the teaching of “Annie Lennox”. He is another important reference in the path of Amos.
