A formidable flamenco-jazz guitar virtuoso, Eduardo Niebla is one of the most brilliant and emotive performers on the world circuit today, fusing flamenco and gypsy jazz with Arabic, Indian, Latin and classical influences, to create a truly exhilarating musical experience.

Eduardo began the workshop/masterclass with a short performance, including pieces from his new album, accompanied by guitarist Ricardo Garcia. He then worked with participants on guitar techniques, harmony, improvisation and composition.

‘Niebla wove a stunning kaleidoscopic array of sonic textures, part classical, part flamenco, tinged with jazz and Latin hues; passionate and gorgeously ornamented, built around melodies of exquisite melancholy.’
– Scotsman

‘The undisputed highlight of this year’s Glastonbury Festival. Quite simply brilliant.’
– The Sound

In an acclaimed 30-year career, Eduardo Niebla has worked with many top artists, including Nishat Khan (sitar), Lol Coxhill (sax), George Michael and Craig David. He has written music for festivals, films and plays, including for the BBC, and recently wrote the music for the Yorkshire Planetarium with poetry by Ian McMillan. He was introduced to recording by the legendary producer Tom Newman and is currently recording his 23rd album. Concert appearances have included the Jaipur Festival India, the Tbilisi International Jazz Festival Georgia, the Olympic Games Greece, Brecon International Jazz Festival, as well as tours to South Africa, the Lebanon, Jordan, the Baltic States, Abu Dhabi, India and throughout Europe.

Born in Tangiers to Andalucian parents and one of 11 children, Eduardo is a completely self-taught musician, At 18 he formed the cult symphonic rock band “Atila” and turned professional, moving to Paris in 1975 and London three years later, where he has since been regarded as one of the outstanding guitarists of his generation.
