   Few men have done as much to spread the music of the Spanish guitar as the late Celedonio Romero, whose love for the instrument spanned its modern history. This documentary video tells the inspiring story of how Romero, a noted guitar virtuoso and gifted composer from Malaga, Spain braved civil war and artistic oppression to become the patriarch of a family of brilliant guitar soloists, and the creator of the world's first guitar quartet. Through captivating interviews with family and friends, with evocative music-from Bach to de Falla and Rodrigo-and archival footage, the one-hour documentary chronicles the romance of Celedonio and Angelita Romero, the family's flight from Franco's Spain, their auspicious arrival on
American soil in 1957 and the birth of the quartet three years later. With inimitable grace and gorgeous music, Los Romeros: The Royal Family of the Guitar provides insight into the colorful history of the classical guitar through the life and times of one of the premiere families in music. From the Romeros' first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show to the momentous occasion of their knighthood, Los Romeros takes viewers on an intimate musical journey that attests to the family's enduring love affair with the guitar.
