Ottmar Liebert, born in Cologne, Germany, discovered his undeniable passion for music while traveling through Asia and playing with fellow wanderers and local musicians. Despite initial aspirations of a career in design and photography, Liebert's journey led him to embrace a life dedicated to music. Settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico, marked a fresh start for him, allowing the local landscape to shape his musical identity. Blending Spanish, Mexican, and World elements, his signature style emerged—captivating melodies infused with a touch of melancholy, harmoniously paired with lively rhythms. In 1989, Liebert founded Luna Negra, and his debut album, initially self-produced as Marita: Shadows and Storms, gained attention after local artist Frank Howell distributed it in his galleries. The remastered version, titled Nouveau Flamenco, recorded in a makeshift studio for under $3,000, became an international sensation, solidifying Liebert's position with the best-selling instrumental acoustic guitar album of all time.VIP reception information
