Tans Hylkema: Steps of Granada

September 1, 2010

Chess teacher Tans Hylkema can be regularly heard playing complicated Tangos on his flamenco guitar throughout Northern California.  Maestro Hylkema’s style is a cross between  Melchor de Marchena and Paco de Lucia and is featured on a new album titled “Steps of Granada.” The releases five tracks are original compositions  that features compelling melodies with magnificently complicated rhythms. With all the ‘Neuvo Flamenco’ albums redefining the genera, it is nice to hear the flamenco guitar in its purist form. Tans Hylkema’s “Steps of Granada” is authentic and inspiring.
