Virtuoso guitarists The Barcelona Trio will treat audiences to a vivacious and enchanting show of flamenco-driven compositions
“Our video says everything”, reads the title to an eye-catching video of the Barcelona Trio in action on their website.

Fronted by the Catalan maestros Manuel González, Xavier Coll, and Luis Robisco, the trio have wowed audiences the world over with their renditions of big names like Manuel de Falla, Federico García Lorca, Isaac Albéniz, Chick Corea, and Paco de Lucía.
On 11 July audiences in Malta will be treated the internationally praised trio as they pay tribute to legendary Spanish guitarist, composer and record producer Paco de Lucía (1947 – 2014). A leading proponent of the new flamenco style,Paco de Lucía was one of the first flamenco guitarists to branch into classical and jazz.
