Germán López

Antonio Toledo

The anciently rooted, petite, five-stringed timple (pronounced TIM-play) becomes a channel for sonic exhilaration in the hands of Gran Canaria-born Germán López. The youthful master timplista entered the Conservatory of Music of Las Palmas at age seven, quickly becoming virtuosic in Spain’s rich rhythmic traditions of flamenco, malaguena, tajarastes, bulerías, tanguillos, and rumbas. He is joined by acoustic guitar virtuoso Antonio Toledo, who is originally from Cádiz in southwestern Spain, for an afternoon of dexterous music making that celebrates the sparkling precision of heritage acoustic performance.

This performance will last approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
