Universal Music Group, His Life-Long Recording Home, Mourns The Loss Of The Brilliant Guitarist Paco De Lucío

Bookmark and Share

The world of music and culture lost one of its most celebrated artists: composer, producer and guitarist Paco de Lucía. An emblem of art, Paco de Lucía contributed to infusing new life into Flamenco and to actively introducing new audiences to this genre, transforming it into a universal language.

Universal Music Group, De Lucía's label since 1964, heard the unexpected news yesterday morning. The passing of one of the most brilliant guitarists of all times and a unique musician leaves an unfillable void in the art world. This is shattering news, particularly for his family.

Jesús López, Chairman of Universal Music Latin America/Iberian Peninsula, said: "The untimely passing of El Maestro, as those of us who were lucky enough to work with Paco called him, has come as a huge shock. We are devastated by this sudden loss. His cultural heritage will live on, fuelling future generations that will have the pleasure of enjoying the stunning body of work of this guitar virtuoso and kind man. Today, Paco de Lucía becomes immortal. Let us celebrate his life respectfully and joyfully".

Paco de Lucía leaves behind a vast musical legacy, featuring 30 original albums as a solo guitarist, in addition to multiple collaborations with international artists. De Lucía's awards and recognitions include the 2004 Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts, the most prestigious acknowledgement given to Flamenco art and, more specifically, to one of its leading exponents. The guitarist also won a Latin Grammy for "Best Flamenco Album" with his album "Cositas Buenas," the National Flamenco Guitar Award and the Gold Medal of Merit in the Fine Arts, among others.

We have lost an exceptional man but his virtuosity and talent will live on forever.
