El Amir is the producer of the debut album ‘Tierra de Luz’ of the flamenco singer José Salinas from Almería, Andalucía.

When we listen to José Salinas, he reminds us of the purity and maturity of the great flamenco singers and it’s no wonder. After his long career he has been collecting all the wisdom by the great masters. His debut album “Tierra de Luz” brings us a personal way of feeling and understanding flamenco, finding a way to express himself. Songs with a great musical wealth that flee from the predictable, Mozarabic and Mediterranean rhytms that dance between the traditional essence and modern sounds. The production, musical composition and arrangements of “Tierra de Luz” are made by Amir John Haddad  “El Amir”.
