Paco de Lucía was widely considered to be the world’s premier flamenco guitarist and by many to be Spain’s greatest musical export. He has had a revolutionary influence on flamenco music both as a composer and otherwise. His influence on flamenco guitar has been compared with that of Andrés Segovia’s on classical guitar. Throughout his 50-year career, he performed and recorded with musical legends such as Eric Clapton, Chick Corea, Carlos Santana, and Al Di Meola, among many others.
