“PACO PEÑA IS A VIRTUOSO, CAPABLE OF DAZZLING AN AUDIENCE BEYOND THE FRETS OF MORTAL MAN … this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument.“ The New York Times
Master flamenco guitarist, Paco Peña, returns to New Zealand this August as part of a national tour with his company featuring some of Spain’s finest dancers, singers and musicians. This company highlights the power & passion of southern Spain.
For one night only at the Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre on Saturday 27 August, and Auckland’s Bruce Mason Centre on Sunday 28 August, The PACO PEÑA FLAMENCO DANCE COMPANY will perform in the flamenco puro style for which Paco Peña is internationally renowned. The performance will showcase the individual virtuosities of each member of the company in a mesmerising night of flamenco. The company presents a show which is not only passionately authentic, but warm with humour & bursting with rhythmic energy.
PACO will introduce new dancers to New Zealand audiences, including Ramon Martinez, complemented by the sensuous talent of Angel Muñoz and female dancer extraordinaire Charo Espino. Appearing on stage with the dancers are Mario Del Mar Fernandez and Miguel Ortega, who add the heartfelt smouldering song of Andalusia together with one of the leading exponents of modern flamenco guitar Paco Arriaga, fellow guitarist Rafael Montilla, and the master himself, Paco Peña.
Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor he has transformed perceptions of the music of his native Andalusia.
