Mediterranean Sundance is a track by Al Di Meola on his second album Elegant Gypsy. Set in 4/4 time and in the key of E minor, the song begins with a duet between Di Meola and de Lucía and then progresses to feature each guitar player taking turns playing rhythm and soloing, and occasionally soloing together.

The song poses extreme difficulties to the performers, because of the speed and precision required of Di Meola’s picking on the steel-stringed guitar, playing extremely long melodic phrases, and to Paco De Lucia’s complex fingerpicking on the Flamenco guitar, as well as the exact matching of Di Meola and De Lucía’s solos which frequently consist of them both playing a rapid set of matching or corresponding notes.

Here’s a video of them playing the track on stage ….
