19 Mar “Un millón de años”: A new production by RYCARDO MORENO on Solera Flamenca
Rycardo Moreno Montiel, a flamenco and jazz guitarist, was born in a gipsy family in 1981. He started in music at the age of 11, accompanying his grandmother, “Pepa la Cartuja”, by singing. He developed his career as a creator, musical producer, composer, arranger and guitarist in the tours of many artists, such as Dorantes, Lebrijano, Tomas de Perrate, Raimundo Amador, Yelsy Heredia, Esperanza Fernández, Javier Ruibal, or Lole Montoya, among many others.
It’s in 2014 Maestro Gerardo Núñez, having heard of his project, encourages and invites him to present it in Gerardo Núñez’s 1st International Guitar Festival. It opened him the doors of the record label Nuba Records / Karonte, which would publish his album “VAREKAI” in 2015, which he would use in order to take part in Sevilla’s Flamenco Biennial in 2016.
From Solera Flamenca we would like to wish him the best of luck in his musical career, as this superb guitarist is also a humble and warm man who is all heart, all of which is reflected on his music and his playing style.
Without further ado, we will now leave you with this soleá: “Un millón de años” (A million years), a beautiful tune composed by maestro Rycardo Moreno accompanied, with his unique and personal style, by the legendary voice of Antonio Mairena, going on to the main tune, this time accompanied by David Domínguez´s percussion. This has been recorded with a guitar of the luthier José A. Fuentes, 2017, an incredible guitar, made by one of the best makers nowadays. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
