A portrait of a moment in the life of a unique and truly charismatic individual. El Niրo Miguel will be remembered as one of the greatest Flamenco guitarists of all times. The living legend attempts to make an old beat up guitar sing. With a thumb as strong as a hammer, El Niրo Miguel still has the power to move by playing heartfelt chords. Chords for life.
