BRILLIANT flamenco jazz guitarist Eduardo Niebla will be stopping off in Mark this Friday as part of his nationwide tour.
Organised by Take Art and the Mark Community Association, the concert promises a sophisticated mix of flamenco and Latin jazz intertwined with classical traditions, Eastern influences and a gypsy jazz edge as the Spanish musician is joined by guitarist Matthew Robinson.
Eduardo has collaborated with some of the top names in jazz, pop and world music during his career, including Mother Gong, Lol Coxhill, George Michael, Craig David, the Dante String Quartet, Indian maestro Nishat Khan, Palestinian oud player Adel Salameh and Rajasthani gypsies in Jaipur.
He has a wealth of international appearances to his name, such as the Cairo Jazz Festival earlier this year, where he received a standing ovation.
It is his journey to create music profoundly connecting us all that Eduardo still continues to pursue and it is the very lyrical and poignantly poetic quality of his playing, as well as his phenomenal guitar technique, which makes each experience incredibly moving and invigorating.
Eduardo will transport an audience from a Somerset village hall to a Spanish beach with his technically brilliant performance.
The performance takes place at Mark Village Hall tonight (November 16) at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for under-16s and are available from Mark Village Stores or Jendy Weekes on 01278-641370.
