A journey to the heart of the flamenco music of Jorge Pardo, an essential artist to understand the evolution of contemporary flamenco.


A journey to the heart of the flamenco music of Jorge Pardo, an essential artist to understand the evolution of contemporary flamenco.

For two years, director Emilio Belmonte and his team accompany the legendary flutist and saxophonist of Paco de Lucía's sextet on his travels around Spain and the world to meet exceptional musicians (Chick Corea, Niño Josele, Duquende, Ana Morales, and others) in order to organize a special concert, a show to be called Trance.

This flamenco road movie has exceptional musical moments and many difficulties for the master of flamenco-jazz fusion. Jorge Pardo's charisma, as well as his conception of art as life and life as art, are the driving force behind one of the most ambitious musical films of recent years.
