Take It or Liebert

Born in Germany to a Chinese-German father and a Hungarian mother, Ottmar Liebert began his love affair with the guitar at age 11. By the time he was 18, he was educated into the many ethnicities of music, and he began traveling as a musician throughout Europe and Asia before settling in the United States in the 1980s. His tastes always veered toward the erudite and artistic, but it wasn't until forming the funky, folk-jazz ensemble Luna Negra in 1988 that he finally found a venue for his discerning craftsmanship. Liebert is an eternal student, always seeking musical enlightenment through the honing of his skills. In tow, he'll have a new holiday album, Winter Rose, and a six-man incarnation of Luna Negra for what will surely be a soothing and educational evening of music.

Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra perform at 8 p.m. Friday, December 9, at Carefree Theatre, 2000 S. Dixie Hwy., West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $27.50 to 37.50. Call 561-833-7305.
