Nouveau fla­menco: Ottmar Liebert

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Be­fore he was world-fa­mous and nom­i­nated for nu­mer­ous Best New Age Al­bum Grammy Awards, Ottmar Liebert per­formed his ver­sion of nouveau fla­menco guitar in bars and restau­rants in Santa Fe, where he’s lived since 1986. Now his mu­sic is played just about ev­ery­where. Whether or not you know it, you’ve heard Liebert and his band, Luna Ne­gra, play “Barcelona Nights,” “Santa Fe,” and “Snakecharmer” many times. His in­stru­men­tal pieces are stun­ningly beau­ti­ful yet sub­tle enough to blend in with back­grounds as dis­parate as a ro­man­tic café, a depart­ment store, or a mo­tion-pic­ture sound­track. Ottmar Liebert and Luna Ne­gra play at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter on Thurs­day, Oct. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in a con­cert ben­e­fit­ing the non­profit pa­tient ad­vo­cacy group Fight Col­orec­tal Can­cer. Tick­ets, $20 to $100, are avail­able at www.tick­etssantafe.org. For $100, you can meet Ottmar Liebert and Luna Ne­gra fol­low­ing the con­cert.
