Default Spanish Guitar music

I love the sound of Spanish guitar music. The slow melodic harmony type of playing. Just stripped down guitar no singing. For example something you would see in a movie during a night under the stars around a fire.

Fingerstyle, instrumental.

But I don't know where to begin in looking for artists that play this kind of music.

I love harmony. Any guitar duo ideas would be great too.

You should be very happy with just about any recording sold under the Flamenco genre. There's also a 'new' Flamenco style out there now, it's like the difference between traditional old school jazz and fusion, it just incorporated a bit more variety in the rhythms and harmonies.

Paco De Lucia is probably the most recognizable name to western audiences, it's not 'always' instrumental though it shouldn't be hard to find more artists with this starting point - same as instrumental only compilations of his performances.



Enjoy

I'd mention Esteban too, but that's almost blasphemy in some circles.

The collaborative live album between Paco de Lucia (who was previously mentioned in this thread), John MacLaughlin, and Al Di Meola (also mentioned) is so outlandishly phenomenal that it made me need to sit down and rethink my life.

This isn't off of the album but it's a pretty good decipher of their wondrous sound.

These are all awesome suggestions. I am finding some I like. Since I have founds some pros here. Mr. Dave, you called out jazz fusion. Anyone have any suggestions with a little island fusion? I'm all in for Indie as well. Mexico beach flair.

I have found brilliance here. It is so nice to find people that love music as well as I do!! Thank you all for replies. I am working my way through all of your suggestions.

You'll probably really enjoy Jaco Pastorius in that case, he features a steel drum player on the majority of his tracks which gives his music a more Caribbean island feel, but he's a bass player so that's the dominant instrument.

I figure you'll also really like Earnest Ranglin's stuff, particularly the Below the Bassline album, it's smooth reggae jazz, and in this case Ranglin is an awesome guitarist.

Some months ago, in the Classic-music section, someone opened a thread on music for guitar. I posted many examples there, but later on thread disappeared (I don't know why). And now I can't be bothered to post them again.

Anyway, I recommend John Williams' albums (the Australian guitarist, not the American film-music composer). As a performer, he has released several compilations of Classical-music pieces for guitar. Also, here you are five well-known Classical solos.

Apart from that: This is a famous rumba titled Entre dos aguas ("Between Two Seas", 1975), by Paco de Lucía:

I don't know, but an island has come to mind right now: Cuba. There are many interrelations and mutual influences between Spanish and Cuban music. A big name: Leo Brouwer.

Un día de noviembre ("A Day of November") and Paisaje cubano con campanas ("Cuban Landscape with Bells"):




El Decamerón negro ("The Black Decameron") and La muerte del ángel ("The Angel's Death"; composed by Astor Piazzolla):
