Eduardo fired up for Scarborough date

North Yorkshire-based flamenco jazz virtuoso and composer Eduardo Niebla is set to play Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre on Thursday 5 May. He will be accompanied by Matthew Robinson on guitar, Dharmesh Parmar on Indian tabla and the theatre choirs.

Eduardo’s fuses flamenco gypsy jazz with classical and Indian nuances. Over the years he has collaborated with musicians across the globe including sitar maestro Nishat Khan, the Dante String Quartet, the late sax player Lol Coxhill, Palestinian oud player Adel Salameh, trance phenomenon Juno Reactor and pop musicians George Michael and Craig David.

He has recorded 23 albums of his original compositions and written music for films, documentaries and plays, including for the BBC, as well as festival commissions for guitar, brass bands, choirs and church organ.

Eduardo was born in Morocco in 1955, the seventh of 11 children. In 1960 the family became refugees and settled in Girona, Spain, where he grew up. In 1973 he turned professional with his symphonic rock band Atila and later moved to Paris. In 1978 he arrived in London to pursue a solo career, performing with Mother Gong at Glastonbury in 1979, and has since been regarded as one of the outstanding guitarists of his generation. He now lives in North Yorkshire where he has his recording studios.
