Boulder Theater presnts PACO PENA Tuesday, October 13 doors 6:30pm, show 7:30pm
Paco Peña brings the true spirit of flamenco to audiences all over the world. As guitarist, composer, dramatist and mentor, he builds inventively on the deep foundations of flamenco.
His imagination, dedication and skill constantly renew this archetypal Spanish art form. He expands its horizons, yet never loses touch with its visceral emotion.
Born in the Andalucian city of Córdoba , Paco Peña began learning guitar from his brother at the age of six and made his first professional appearance at the age of 12. In the late 1960s he left Spain for London , where his recitals of flamenco music captured the public imagination.
In 1995 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 Best Flamenco Guitarist of the Year for five consecutive years.
