They met in a castle in Germany. Before long they were jamming together and realized there was something special happening. They wrote with new inspiration for the CD they would make together, NEW WORLD FLAMENCO. Germany's famed duo Tierra Negra and America's award-winning guitarist and harp-guitarist Muriel Anderson have found an historic combination. The joyous passion of Raughi's flamenco guitar, Leo's pulsating rhythms and Muriel's beautiful melodies merge to create music unlike any other. Joined by drummer Danny Gottlieb, bassist Mark Egan both of the original Pat Metheney Group, and powerhouse bassist Victor Wooten, flamenco nuevo has found a new world. Listen to excerpts
from the CD NEW WORLD FLAMENCO, also featuring Danny Gottlieb and Mark Egan from the Pat Metheney Group and powerhouse bassist Victor Wooten.

Tierra Negra Bio: 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. Leo Henrichs and Raughi Ebert, Tierra Negra's founding duo, have been performing together for over a decade, They have recorded eight albums, are featured on countless international guitar compilations and films. They have undertaken tours that have seen them alight festivals and concerts throughout Europe and North America. There is persuasiveness in the melody - an infectious groove and genuine passion in Tierra Negra's music. A TIERRA NEGRA live concert is a joyous, passionate and transforming experience for the audience - truly not to be missed.
