Death of a flamenco giant

Paco de Lucia has died in Cancun, Mexico, aged 66. He was reportedly playing with his grandchildren on a beach when struck by a heart attack.

The son of a gypsy guitarist, Antonio Sanchez, he was acclaimed in Spain as its most universal flamenco interpreter. He was equally adept at classical and jazz.

  • Wow. Paco deLucia’s gone, just like that. Wow. That sure does bring back a long ago San Francisco live and in concert memory. 66 years of age. Rather doubt his fingers will ever stop flying. R.I.P. Mr. DeLucia, Paco Artist
