David Correa at Music in the Park

by Rosemary Ponnekanti for OLY ARTS

David Correa has been blending Spanish guitar with Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms since 1999, tucking in a bit of Middle Eastern influence for extra spice. His San Francisco-based band regularly tours the western United States, winning three Norbay awards in a row for best Latin band. This March, Correa won best performing artist in Napa County in the North Bay Bohemian readers’ and writers’ poll. Called “dynamically rhythmic, deeply melodic” by SmoothJazz.com, Correa blends a flamenco technique with a Southwestern feel for songs like “Hacienda” and “Veracruzana.” Signed with Baja/TRS records and currently planning a new CD release this Christmas, the guitarist brings his four-piece-band to Olympia as part of a summer tour of California, Utah and Washington.
