Broza’s first endeavor at an all-instrumental guitar album is produced by Grammy-award winner Javier Limón.
A longtime fan of the Spanish guitar, Broza has incorporated many styles of flamenco, jazz, classical into his performance repertoire. Over the years, fans and friends have repeatedly requested a guitar instrumental album. “After 43 years as a singer-songwriter, composing music without lyrics was a challenging task,” shares Broza. “I had to perfect my playing to become a guitarist by trade. It took a while – almost 3 years.”
The album was recorded at the Casa Limón Studios in Madrid, Spain, a “magical place” where some of the world’s greatest guitarists, including Paco de Lucia and Tomatito, recorded their albums.
Producer Javier Limón directed the undercurrents of nuevo flamenco to a confluence with Broza’s other musical influences. Says Limón: “David Broza is one of the few artists with whom I would embark on any adventure with my eyes closed. The result is the most beautiful and profound journey to the roots of the most popular and beloved instrument on the planet – the Spanish Guitar.”
