La Sonanta’s new release in the Maestro Series for Flamenco Guitar: “Niño de Pura – Técnicas Esenciales de la Guitarra Flamenca”
The 6th release in the La Sonanta’s Flamenco Guitar Maestro Series features the essential techniques and styles of the acclaimed and multi-awarded flamenco guitar master, Daniel Navarro Cruz, better known by his artist name Niño De Pura.
Starting from general playing tips, Niño De Pura demonstrates how to deal with posture issues, finger positioning and picado coordinations. Based on extensive exercises, Niño De Pura demonstrates and explains a clear, effective way to learn and improve all essential flamenco guitar techniques (e.g. picado, arpeggio, alzapua, rasgueos, tremolo). In addition to the selected exercises, Niño De Pura plays some of his best known compositions. All solos and exercises are replayed slowly on split screen with close-ups of the left and right hand and a dynamic on screen compás. The demonstrated compositions include his famous guajira ‘Pa’Pura’, the alegría ‘Alegrías del Kiki’ and the taranta ‘Tocando el Cielo’.
Con mucho placer puedo anunciar que acabo de hacer las transcripciones para el nuevo libro/ DVD del maestro José Manuel León. Incluye temas de su álbum ‘Sirimusa’ y una Seguiriya con Alicia Carrasco Melgar al cante. La publicación está previsto para finales de este año por La Sonanta.
Gracias a todos!
