Zyryab is a 1990 album by composer Paco de Lucía, performed with his sextet. It features jazz pianist Chick Corea and guitarist Manolo Sanlúcar. The album is named after Ziryab, a 9th-century, Shiraz-born poet/musician at the Umayyad court in Córdoba, credited with introducing to Spain the Persian lute, later to become the Spanish guitar.
