Gharnata

Spectacle live Chant-Musique-Danse

Gharnata means Granada in arabic. Why this choice? By being a Granadian, Luis de la Carrasca is aware of the legacy left by this extraordinary civilization at his peak.

Luis de la Carrasca whose voice jumps with ease from a powerful register to a register with restraint is surrounded by 5 musicians in this album : the guitarists José Luis Dominguez and Manuel Gomez, the doublebassist Benjamin Ramos, the percussionist François Taillefer, the pianist Jérôme Boudin-Clauzel and Ana Pérez on backing vocals, palmas and dance.

His lyrics are a tribute to the values of great importance, essential to humanity historically : respect, coexistency, tolerance, generosity, willingness, faith, goodness and the most important love, love of fellow beings, of life, of earth, of nature…
Luis de la Carrasca also felt the necessity to approach the importance of our roots. The reference which is guiding us towards the future remembering where we came from and who we are.
Finally, it’s also a tribute to the memory of great geniuses who are Federico García Lorca, Antonio Machado and the great Bizet. An inescapable and unforggetable heritage for humanity.
