Says Broza: “While recording the piece at the Casa Limón studio in Madrid, I realized I hadn’t named this piece. My inspiration for this composition was a cross between a jazzy Spanish guitar tune with the gypsy Django Reinhardt feel, and some Stephane Grappelli and Scott Joplin-style swing all mixed up. But it also had some more rugged essence to it, and someone in the studio said that it sounded like a western without horses. So I answered: “I’ll never ride a horse again”, which was just an honest reply. As I was answering the engineer, I realized that this will be the name of this tune!”

The single follows the release of “Tears for Barcelona,” the DJ Chaim remix of “Tears for Barcelona” and “Guitar Confessions.”
EN CASA LIMÓN, produced by Grammy-award winner Javier Limón, is Broza’s first endeavor at an all-instrumental guitar album. The album was recorded at the Casa Limón Studios in Madrid, Spain, a “magical place” where some of the world’s greatest guitarists, including Paco de Lucia and Tomatito, recorded their albums.
Producer Javier Limón directed the undercurrents of nuevo flamenco to a confluence with Broza’s other musical influences. Says Limón: “David Broza is one of the few artists with whom I would embark on any adventure with my eyes closed. The result is the most beautiful and profound journey to the roots of the most popular and beloved instrument on the planet – the Spanish Guitar.”
In addition to Broza’s Spanish guitar, the album features Israel Suarez “Piraña” on percussion, and Dany Noel on bass. Notable guest artists are Randy Brecker on trumpet, Tali Rubenstein on recorders, Layth Sidiq on violin, Antonio Serrano on harmonica and Delfina Cheb on vocalizations.
The album is dedicated to the memory of the great guitar luthiers Manuel Contreras and his son Pablo M. Contreras II.
