Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra

German native Ottmar Liebert is one of the few flamenco artists who can sell out midsize rooms, but his Houston fans have a rare opportunity to see Liebert and his band Luna Negra a lot closer up. Liebert began his flamenco career at restaurants around Santa Fe, where he still lives, and has become one of the exotic Spanish guitar music's principal ambassadors; his double-platinum 1990 LP Nouveau Flamenco is the biggest-selling guitar album of all time. Dormant since 2004's La Semana, Liebert and Luna Negra have released two albums this year: Up Close, recorded live at Liebert's Santa Fe studio, and Scent of Light, inspired by his travels to places like Tibet, India and Granada. Act fast, though — only 140 tickets will be made available for each show.
