In the world of modern Flamenco, few artists have attained the heights of Tierra Negra. In fact, so influential are these two German guitarists that they’re often cited as the protagonists of Flamenco Nuevo, the new wave. Tierra Negra may infuse their sound with elements of folklore, jazz and even pop, but the theme never strays far from the infectious rhythm and melody of Rumba-Flamenco.
So particular about their sound are Leo Henrichs and Raughi Ebert, Tierra Negra’s founding duo, that they’ve even gone so far as to design their own range of Flamenco guitars. These high-end, professional instruments are built to such exacting standards that the likes of the Gypsy Kings will play nothing else.
Performing for over a decade, Leo and Raughi have already recorded eight albums and undertaken tours that have seen them alight festivals and clubs throughout Europe, North America and China.
