Paco de Lucia , Light & Shade (1995)
Paco de Lucia appeared like a comet on the international scene. His guitar-playing was of a type never before heard-flamenco, yes, but with something quite new. Flamenco music, it roots shrouded in mystery, is certainly integral to his style. Listening to him, though, you can soon hear that he is trying to break several stylistic barriers.
The film should not only introduce the star everyone reckons they are familiar with from concerts or recording-the self-assured, grandiose performer, but Paco's readiness to allow a highly personal film portrait of himself means that we can gain a background glimpse into the personality of this fascinating musician.
