Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio with Tupac Mantilla and Brad Barrett

Event Date: 
Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 7:30pm
Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 10:00pm

Virtuoso flamenco guitarist/composer/improviser Juanito Pascual has been called "one of the hottest flamenco guitarists in recent years" by National Public Radio, a major accolade which in this case is just the jumping off point for the Minneapolis native's musical style. His sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco with his love of jazz, classical, rock, and more.

A graduate of New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program, he has spent the last 20 years forging a unique path fusing an array of influences into his flamenco-based vocabulary.

Pascual returns to The Regattabar presenting his latest project, the Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio, featuring two highly versatile and dynamic musicians, Grammy-nominated percussionist Tupac Mantilla and bassist Brad Barrett. Fusing their distinct musical backgrounds with a palpable personal chemistry, the Trio has created a distinctive and exhilarating sound.

Currently, they are producing their first CD, scheduled for release in fall of 2013. Audio/Video Clip  Artist Official Website
