Born in Cologne, Germany, to a Chinese- German father and a Hungarian mother, Ottmar Liebert gained prominence in the late 1980s from his expert melding of pop-aware flamenco guitar and disparate influences ranging from South American percussion to jazz to rock. In less than a year, Liebert sprang from playing hotel lobbies and restaurants in Santa Fe (where he'd settled) to opening for Miles Davis. Three decades later, he and backing band Luna Negra still effortlessly conjure images of faraway lands through flawless sets of guitar mastery. If you're not entranced by this stuff, you don't have ears. (Triple Door, 216 Union St, 838-4333, 7 pm [all ages] and 9 pm [21+], $25 adv/$30 DOS)
