Pace Peña presents Flamencura

published on 02 April 2014

The legendary talents of Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As a renowned guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor he has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form.

For his latest production, Flamencura, the highly-skilled virtuoso talents of Paco Peña are further explored in the art of flamenco – “Flamenco rhythms are vital; the compás is like a primal pulse, like the rhythm of the earth… and everyone must get to feel it!”

Paco Peña will premiere his most recent production in Australia in April 2014, proudly presented by Abstract Entertainment. The New York Times declared that “Mr Peña is a virtuoso, capable of dazzling an audience beyond the frets of mortal man. He combines rapid-fire flourishes with a colourist’s sense of shading; this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument.”

It should come as no surprise that readers of America’s Guitar magazine judged Paco Peña as best flamenco guitarist of the year for five consecutive years.
