‘It is always a pleasure to witness the Spanish maestro of both traditional and contemporary Flamenco (the Spanish genre of song, dance and instrumental – mainly guitar – which is mostly associated with the Andalusian Roma in southern Spain) in action…Lara’s bolder strums, purposefully powerful taps and masterful string-pulling, he emanates the power, passion, emotion and fire of dramatic Flamenco’ – Glam Adelaide Review ”The music, beyond being exceptionally well played, is always pretty and eminently approachable – a quality compounded by the choice of repertoire. 8/10” – Sydney Morning Herald
