The flamenco guitarist Dani de Morón is a leading performer of his generation, who has always worked alongside legendary flamenco performers: when he was in his 20s, he toured with Paco de Lucía as his second guitarist. He has built his career in the traditional flamenco way, developing his art through accompanying singers and dancers. On his third album called 21, Dani de Morón accompanies three outstanding gypsy singers: Duquende, Antonio Reyes and Jesús Méndez. He is an inspiration to guitarists, with his distinctive alzapúa thumb technique and the Morón style of playing flamenco with a hint swing rhythm. He has also worked with leading musicians from other styles such as jazz and world, including Dave Liebmann, Aaron Diehl, Gerardo Núñez, Yotam Silberstein and Concha Buika.
