Sabicas (Agustín Castellón Campos) was a Flamenco guitarist who was born in 1912 in Pamplona, Spain and died in 1990 in New York.
Sabicas began playing guitar at the age of 4 and made his performing debut 2 years later...Leaving Spain in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War, he went into exile in South America with bailaora (dancer) Carmen Amaya. The two toured together several times. Sabicas later settled in New York City in the United States. He did not return to his native Spain until 1967.
Sabicas was instrumental in the introduction of Flamenco to audiences outside of Spain and the Spanish-speaking world. He was probably best known for his technical skills: Adding the Classical element to Flamenco guitar playing. Blazingly fast picado runs (scales), fast arpeggios, quality composition for the many forms of flamenco, and never losing the rhythm, which was critical if playing with a dancer. Also, he was considered to have “perfect pitch”. Sabicas was a tremendous genius of his day, not only with technique, but with major contributions, rendering Flamenco unimaginable and giving new tools and possibilities for the solo instrument. He brought this art to concert halls and major theaters where all classes can enjoy
