Burnside Album Details
Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra, Dune
Dune contains the haunting southwest border-country flamenco music Ottmar and his band Luna Negra are famous for. This isn't old school Flamenco. Acoustic guitar mixes with electric, gypsy accordion, electric bass, funky drum-boxing and percussion. There's no rain in this music, just poetic sunshine at midnight. “I wanted to play guitar melodies that sounded sung”, says Ottmar. “For some reason I kept thinking about old jazz and pop crooners. So I sang almost every melody first and then figured out how to play it on guitar. Perhaps it’s guitar anti-shredding!” What better analogy than Dune to describe Ottmar’s passion for melody… an ever-changing landscape.
