OCA is pleased to welcome back one of the most acclaimed flamenco guitarists on the international music scene today: Juanito Pascual, now touring with his powerhouse trio featuring bassist Brad Barrett and Grammy-nominated percussionist Tupac Mantilla.
His sound is an organic blend of traditional and contemporary flamenco with influences such as Jimi Hendrix to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. Recognized in both Spain and the U.S. as a unique and creative flamenco and jazz performer, Juanito brings together global audiences through his mesmerizing virtuosity, original composition style, and passion for collaboration. Now based in Los Angeles, Juanito is also an accomplished composer, arranger and producer who scored the 2016 Netflix biopic about the Pope (Call Me Francisco). Environmental steward-ship is another of his passions (‘Earth Train’ Panamanian rainforest project) as he uses music to inspire and educate. Juanito regularly hosts flamenco workshops around the world, and has produced a popular method book, “The Total Flamenco Guitarist” (Alfred Press).
Formed in 2011, Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio seamlessly merges flamenco with elements of jazz, world music and even rock and soul influences. Do not miss the mesmerizing virtuosity and warm and evocative playing of this ‘flamenco phenom’ (Boston Globe) Juanito Pascual with his compelling trio at OCA’s intimate and acoustically excellent venue!
