The great flamenco guitar virtuoso Paco de Lucia has passed away in Mexico today at the age of 66.  Paco de Lucía was the most innovative and influential flamenco guitarist of the last forty years. One of the greatest musicians alive today, beyond genres, styles, or categories, he plays his way right into audience’s hearts with his brilliant mix of technical skill and feeling. He also played flamenco jazz and fusion music. He has performed with dozens of musicians, including Chick Corea, Al di Meola, John McLaughlin, Eric Clapton, Brian Adams, and many more.

Paco de Lucia had performed on the 22nd of July 2013 at Byblos Internationl Festival, Lebanon
