Carlito Perez - Flamenco & Classical Guitarist

With 17 years professional experience this artist started playing at a young age. This self-taught guitarist has experience with a wide range of musical styles but has found flamenco to be his true calling.

Having lived and worked with dancers and singers in Seville, Cadiz and Granada in the local flamenco scenes he has gained a lot of first hand experience and feel from the birthplace of Flamenco, Andalusia.

Over the years he has learnt to incorporate and fuse musical techniques and perspectives with the flamenco tradition and now composes his own original flamenco music that, although rooted in tradition, manages to do so by reflecting his experience with jazz, latin and Brazilian music. This makes him rather unique among flamenco guitarists as he is able show flamenco to be a dynamic and forward thinking music and thus able to keep up with the changing state of the music as it undergoes reform in Spain.

Apart from flamenco, he also plays a range of classical pieces, which are popular for private functions, and also plays Gypsy jazz, another guitar style which was popularised by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli in the 1920’s and 30’s in Paris.

With this flexible approach, he is in an ideal position to respond to the needs of his clients and is open to suggestions so that his repertoire can be adapted for your event; allowing him to change the tempo and feel of the atmosphere his music creates so as to better cater for the tempo and feel of the event in question; one minute playing something relaxed and tranquil the next able to change gear and add some music that his clients can tap their feet to.

This Act's Average Star Rating

Our first encounter with this artist was outta the blue @ The Cellar Bar when this gangly figure rocked up on roller blades, sat down unannounced when our opening act no-showed & proceeded to blow us away with some stunning flamenco ruminations, from which we've never fully recovered! It was, as they say, a moment...

Conrad Barr (Solid Air Productions),

Thanks for playing at our wedding ...! It really added that extra touch that was needed. We all loved your music, you seemed to know what was needed at each stage and you worked really well with the registrar and organisers. Magical mate, I'de recommend you to anyone!!!!

Mike and Stina Kamp,

... is one of the finest guitarists that I have had the pleasure to work with. He is always professional and has the ability to spellbind audiences with his intricate guitar style. I would not hesitate to book him again as I have never seen him do a bad show.
