Flamenco World Fusion, including Indian Tablas, Cello, Jazz Sax, and Fretless Jazz Bass, is a unique musical blend that will leave listeners spellbound and entranced. Flamenco guitarist Miguel Espinoza is bringing together virtuoso musicians of disparate backgrounds for a fun evening of passion, intensity, and heart. His music weaves together a variety of influences, his own as well as his colleagues, from Gitano to Indian to Classical to Jazz, and beyond.
Miguel Espinoza has had a lifelong love affair with flamenco. A child prodigy who started honing his technique since the age of four—and performed his first recital at age nine on PBS—Espinoza is hailed as one of the best flamenco guitarists in the world. Described by Guitar Player Magazine as "mesmerizing," Espinoza is much more than a virtuosic technician. Whether his lightning-fast fingers are skittering across the fretboard, fluttering over the sound hole like percussive hummingbird wings or skillfully drawing achingly beautiful melodies out of the strings, Espinoza's award-winning compositions create an exotic, intoxicating musical elixir of flamenco fusion–one that is as sonically exciting as it is emotionally moving.
