The world famous Bavarian born Flamenco Guitarist Wolfgang “Lobo” Fink and local, classically trained Flamenco Maestro Esaú Galván will present their second CD together at a splendid show in the Incanto Cabaret Theater, Insurgentes 109, by the River Cuale the evening of June 26. The duo has thrilled audiences this year at their many concerts and they continue to produce incredible improvised music together. The first CD recorded live at Incanto sold out and is in it’s second edition and a brand new one has just been completed.
This new CD was recorded in Dany Marquez’ Groove House Studio in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and is indeed a treasure. Inspiration? Well, judging by the name of the CD, Arriba La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, it is La Cruz itself. Esau was born and raised there and indeed carries the town in his heart. As his father has always been a fisherman, the surf and the life it gives to the community are of great importance to him. Lobo has now spent a major part of his life in the town and loves it for the friendly people and great surfing. I think the magic they feel comes out in the music.
Lobo completed an incredible international career with the famous violinist from San Miguel de Allende and Sarasota, Florida, Willie Royal when Willie passed away in 2016. Since that time he has been living again in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle with his wife Diana and presenting sold out shows around the Banderas Bay Area. For the past two years, he and his former student Esaú, now an accomplished flamenco guitarist, have worked together, producing many extremely well attended shows both in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle’s Tree House Bar and Incanto Vallarta’s Cabaret Theater. Lobo who studied years ago with the famous gypsy guitarists in the Caves of Sacromonte in Granada brings an inspired, free flowing style while Esaú, more formally trained, adds his classical touches to their performances. It seems they were born to play together as their interaction flows in a creative and inspired musical conversation. The presentation of the new CD will take place at Incanto Cabaret Theater on June 26 at 8:00 PM. (incantovallarta.com for tickets or box office at Insurgentes 109).
