Juanito Pascual: Nuevo Flamenco Ensemble with dancer Nelida Tirado & guests
In his Wellesley concert on April 6, Juanito will be joined by his acclaimed instrumental trio and dancer Nelida Tirado, and other special percussive dancers as guest artists in kathak and tap for a cross-genre collaboration!
Jonathan “Juanito” Pascual is an internationally recognized guitarist and “flamenco phenom” (The Boston Globe). His sound is a truly organic blend of masterful traditional and contemporary flamenco, with influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. Juanito brings together global audiences through his mesmerizing virtuosity, original composition style, dedication to music as a global communicator, and passion for collaboration. Energized by the desire to share the beauty and soul-stirring power of flamenco, with its ancient roots, yet vibrant and evolving tradition, Juanito’s performances, recordings, and workshops reverberate with infectious charisma. Related performance will be on April 7 at Lexington’s Cary Hall.
