Flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia worked with singer Camarón de la Isla in the 1970s. The 10 albums they recorded together are now considered classics and their pairing was one of the most important and influential in flamenco history.

However, Paco also worked with jazz musicians Chic Corea, Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin, making hiim one of the first flamenco guitarists to be known to a wider audience.

Noted for his fast and fluent fingerstyle runs, Paco often perfoprmed with the Paco de Lucía Sextet, which he formed in 1981 with his brothers, singer Pepe de Lucía and guitarist Ramón de Algeciras.

Paco is also credited with bringing the cajón into flamenco - a percussion instrument originating in Peru but today a feature of flamenco music all over the world.

After his tour of the USA and Canada in 2004, Paco reduced his workload and stopped touring, performing only a few concerts and festivals each year. He still kept a holiday home in Mexico, which he visited often and where he died of a heart attack in 2014, aged 66.

Described by Richard Chapman and Eric Clapton in their book Guitar: Music, History, Players as a "titanic figure in the world of flamenco guitar", Paco de Lucia's music and influence lives on.

To hear more about this giant of the guitar, listen in to Dave Hewitt as he presents Paco de Lucia - In Focus on Phoenix Radio at 8pm on Saturday.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.
