      It's been a long time since the Flamenco guitarist Nikos Tsiachris had the idea to record a solo album. But just now the time was ripe for it. The new album “Alcance” by Nikos Tsiachris stands for a matured Flamenco artist whose outstanding playing style is presented in beautiful original compositions. Especially the 4 solo guitar pieces prove that the Berlin based artist with Greek roots can definitely keep up with the Spanish masters.

      At the same time “Alcance” was a self-analysis: So Nikos Tsiachris states “I am a modern Flamenco artist. Anyone who expects a 70s and 80s Flamenco sound will be disappointed.” In fact the album sends out a modernity and exquisite freshness. Right in the first track the listener encounters a Rock guitar, which leads to the song ending and echoes in the distance. In the track “Lobna” a trumpet solo in a Taqsim style surprises the listener. It contributes to a the song's captivating oriental touch.

      Nikos Tsiachris was supported by the excellent percussion player Bandolero, who has already toured internationally with the “Jorge Pardo´s Trio” and the “Joaquín Cortés Ballet Flamenco”. On “Alcance” Bandolero plays cajón, palmas and jaleo and grands the album with a unique rhythmical note. Amazingly both musicians got to know each other just 2 days before the recording. But they musically understood each other right away and recorded these wonderful and diversified album. Furthermore Nikos Tsiachris invited following great guest musicians: the double bass player Yelsy Heredia who has played with Diego el Cigala, Bebo and Chucho Valdés; the Flamenco singer Juan Cárdenas who wrote a lovely poem for the tune "Veleta".

      The first solo album by Nikos Tsiachris is a colorful album full of authenticity, passion and love!
