Paco Peña leads a company featuring a stellar cast of guitarists, percussionists, vocalists and his outstanding Flamenco Dance Company. In Flamenco Vivo!, Peña and his talented company bring to life the intoxicating rhythms, colors and sounds of Andalucía as they fill the stage with bursts of glorious improvisation and virtuoso flamenco technique. Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor, he has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form. As was written in the London Independent: “If you only ever see flamenco once in your life, make it this!”
“Mr. Peña is a genuine virtuoso, capable of dazzling an audience with technical abilities beyond the frets of mortal man. He combines rapid-fire flourishes with a colorist’s sense of shading; the listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with more assured mastery of his instrument.” -The New York Times
