Spanish guitar group at Furman

DOWNEY - Incendio, a Los Angeles-based instrumental Spanish guitar music group, performs Wednesday at Furman Park, part of the city's ongoing summer concert series.The concert begins at 7 p.m. Incendia is known for its sweeping, romantic playing that is at the heart of live Spanish guitar performance. Their concerts balance rock-style enthusiasm and energy with a "tremendous technical and improvisational sophistication," according to one review. The group has explored jazz, Celtic, middle eastern and electronica music throughout its career, and puts its own stamp on their self-produced music. Incendia was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, XTC, Paco de Lucia, Joni Mitchell and others.
