Ottmar Liebert with Luna Negra
Liebert’s incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany, to a Chinese-German father and a Hungarian mother, Liebert began playing guitar at eleven and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia, intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his rock-and-roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, Massachusetts, he abandoned the frustrations of the East Coast and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world and releasing a catalog of classic recordings.
