FLACO DE NERJA
FLAMENCO GUITARIST AND COMPOSITOR
Strongly influenced by the music of virtuoso Paco de Lucia, Flaco studies Flamenco music autodidactically. Proof of his extraordinary talent follows in 2001 and 2004, when he reaches the final round of Spanish Flamenco guitar’s most important competition, the Concurso Nacional del Arte Flamenco de Cordoba.
Flaco grows up with classical music, jazz and traditional Roma music. The influences of these different styles are audible in his compositions, making his pieces truly unique. That uniqueness opens doors for Flaco towards the best ensembles and soloists of the present, ranging from baroque orchestra “L`Arpeggiata”, the “Timna Brauer and Elias Meiri Ensemble”, Antonio Rey, to the “Janoska Ensemble” and the most important concert halls worldwide. His concert “Hommage a Paco de Lucia” is broadcasted live on French national radio “Radio Culture France” and TV station “TV2 France”.
