Luis Gimenez Amoros is an accomplished guitarist from the Valencia region of Spain. He combines traditional music from the Spanish Levant with musical influences from Europe, Asia and Africa, starting intercultural dialogues with other musicians as he travels.
Amoros conducts workshops, performs concerts, and records albums with the musicians he meets, and has been quoted as saying: “Music has its own map that goes beyond borders” (Abdullah, 2022). He also lectures on ethnomusicology for various universities, and publishes academic articles, such as:
Amoros, L. G. (2018). Nubenegra records and Saharawi music: A musical and social interaction beyond transnationalism. Expressions maghrébines, 17(2), 187-202.
