Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra

I discovered Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra, when I saw that their album was in the top 200 best selling albums in world music on iTunes. I like their music because it makes me think of people happily dancing away.

Ottmar Liebert was born in Germany but his father is Chinese-German and his mother is Hungarian. As is the case with a lot world music artists I feature, he spent a lot of time outside of his country of birth during his childhood and travelled through Europe and Asia with his family, so I imagine that this is what encouraged his style of Nouveau Flamenco. He set up Luna Negra in 1990 and has recorded with them ever since.
