FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE! - 8 PM 17 APRIL 2015

SOLQUEMIA (Melb) will present a night of spanish guitar music with sounds of flamenco, latin jazz and gypsy style rumba.

Alejandro Florez established Solquemia in 2009 as a means of experimenting with different sounds and instrumentation, both solo and in collaboration with other musicians. Now, with his longest guitar compadre, Juan Martinez, he presents Solquemia "Esencial", a guitar duo that brings out the captivating magic of the Spanish guitar.  Solquemia “Esencial” combines Juan's virtuosity and dazzling technique with Alejandro's sensitivity and lyrical melodies to evoke primal emotions, stirring up feelings from deep within that can only be set free by two guitars in their purest form. Flamenco with traces of past experiences are woven together for a guitar experience not to be missed. You can also catch them on SATURDAY at The Fyshwick Freshfood markets, on SUNDAY at the Bus Depot Markets.

Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.  FNL is kindly sponsored by B2B, Canberra's leading business and government magazine.
