I'm a huge fan of The Gipsy Kings, of Rodrigo y Gabriela, of flamenco in general. So here comes a Portland based trio called Toque Libre!
If you've been at our KINK wine events in the BING Lounge, you've heard 1/3rd of the group, Mehdi Farjami. Now add two Chilean-born brothers Pablo and Ricardo, and you have an amazing sound. Something I guess we'll have to coin a new term for. "Toque Libre "free form" We'll take it from there.
Pablo Ojeda talks about the sometime double-edged sword of the "flamenco" label.
