Eduardo Niebla

“World class virtuoso” (Time Out) Spanish guitarist and composer EDUARDO NIEBLA is one of the most brilliant and emotive performers on the world circuit today, fusing “poignantly poetic…and truly fabulous” (The Scotsman) flamenco gypsy jazz with Arabic, Indian, Latin and classical influences, to create a truly “stunning” (The Sound) and “exhilarating” (Jazz Journal) musical experience “full of hot, dark, Mediterranean passion” (The Scotsman)

His concerts appearances have included the OLYMPIC GAMES GREECE, THE Tbilisi International Jazz Festival, Georgia, Glastonbury and the Brecon International Jazz Festivals, England, the San Isidro Fiesta, Madrid, in addition to numerous international festivals throughout Europe and the Baltic States. He has undertaken extensive concert tours to Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle East and South Africa and has received great critical acclaim:

“He gives pleasure that only a world class virtuoso at his best is capable of…he reached everyone in the packed hall…extremely impressive.” (Sakala News, Estonia)

“Astonishing interplay between the principals who wed technical fluidity and virtuosity to an unashamedly secular passion.” (Q Review)

Eduardo has recorded extensively, releasing 23 cds of his own compositions: “A stunning collection of originals… which work wonderfully well, showing what Jelly Roll Morton called “the Spanish tinge” is still a potent force” (Jazz UK) “Niebla proves his mastery and composing genius with every touch.” (Die Rheinpfalz)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
