As a guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor, Paco Peña embodies both the authenticity and innovation of flamenco and has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form. Named Best Flamenco Guitarist of the Year 5 years in a row by GUITAR magazine, Paco has brought his flamenco around the world from The Royal Albert Hall to New York’s Carnegie Hall. Paco’s newest show Flamencura explores that elusive state at the core of the art of flamenco.
