Paco Peña in Poland

Paco Peña, regarded as the best flamenco guitarist in the world, is coming to Poland with his signature project entitled A Compás!

A guitarist, composer and music producer, Peña started his adventure with the guitar at the tender age of six. Within a few years, he evolved into a professional performer. Flamenco, the national treasure of Spain, is his element, but despite his strong ties to tradition, Peña also explores Latin jazz, blues and classical European music.

Since 1970, Peña has played with a select group of vocalists, musicians and flamenco dancers who form the Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company. The ensemble have brought flamenco to famous theaters and other venues around the world such as the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican in London. They are also frequent guests at festivals in Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Athens, Israel and Singapore.

The show which the Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company are bringing to Poland was nominated as the Best Music Show for the 2006 Theater Awards. One of the most popular music projects in the group’s history, A Compás delivers a perfectly synchronized combination of singing, dance and music, the three constituents of flamenco. The dancers, vocalists and musicians perform in symbiosis as Peña plays stunning guitar solos.

The show has a tinge of sorrow, with overtones of struggle and rebellion as pain is blend with joy and suffering with happiness.
