She took courses in Mexico with Antonio Fernandez Montoya "El Farru", Alfonso Losa, David Paniagua "El Pani", Karen Lugo, Alejandra Hernandez.

She has also performed in many theatres, and given several live performances in "tablaos" and has been teaching flamenco to all age-groups since 2012.
The Guitarist plays traditional flamenco guitar focussing on the beauty of sound together with an earthy and powerful almost "throaty" tone. In flamenco circles this is known as "muy flamenco" or very flamenco.
His repertoire is very extensive and includes pieces such as the magnificent Zapateado en Re by Sabicas or the despairing and powerful Rondeña by Ramón Montoya or the superb Alegrías de Córdoba by Paco Peña.
"This performance left the audience overwhelmed as they rose to their feet in appreciation of an extremely talented guitarist. He is his guitar. He lives and breathes it".
"At times unexpectedly lyrical, at times tragic and broken, with chords almost shaken from his hand."

This Act's Average Star Rating
“A lovely evening. It was such a pleasure to hear you and your dancer at our March Flamenco meeting in Beaconsfield. Everyone said what a lovely evening they had. As we are putting together our programme of events for the coming season I was hoping you could give a similar performance for our Club on Saturday 10th March.”
Gill Hustwick, Club Hispanico Internacional de Bucks, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
“Thank you so much for your beautiful playing and dancing for us on Saturday evening. I have had so much praise about your guitar brilliance. We greatly appreciated your performances. Perhaps we can invite you in the future.”
Mike, Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead
“Many thanks for coming to Denham last week and entertaining our members so brilliantly at our Spanish evening. I have had lots of very enthusiastic and positive comments about the evening, particularly your guitar and castanet playing and dancing. I'm pleased some members took part in the dance and you taught them very well. Thank you very much again and best wishes for the future.”
Clare Frost, Denham Golf Club
“Thank you both for a superb evening of beautiful music and dance last night. Our friends have contacted us to say how much they enjoyed it too and the fact that it was a complete surprise we loved learning the stories behind some of the pieces. We look forward to seeing you again.”
Bob and Teresa, Northampton
“We'd like to express our thanks and appreciation of the superb show you put on for us at our wedding. Guests remarked how beautiful it was to have the guitarist playing in the gardens during the ceremony and after; with the sunshine we had it created the perfect atmosphere, exactly what I had imagined! The evening show was another excellent mood setter, so many guests said what a lovely Spanish theme it had and thought the dancing was captivating. We loved all the planning/ choosing the music and it was all very special to us.”
Julia and Richard, Oxfordshire
“I booked the guitarist & his dancer for my father's 100th birthday party in Pyrford Surrey. I was a bit apprehensive about booking online as you don?t really know what you are getting until they are there & started. My father is Spanish, consequently new all about Flamenco dance & guitar & I can honestly say that the guitarist was superb on the guitar & his dancer was equally as good dancing. They were truly a couple to be admired & very professional in what they do. Could not have made a better choice for authentic Flamenco dance & guitar. SUPERB ”
Jose Ramira, Surrey
“The act was excellent,well presented, they arrived bang on 4pm and left at 7.45. They displayed a very high technical ability and it was interesting to hear an explaination of the playing of the palillos, and to have the guitarist giving us background to the palos he played - a wonderful performance. They are a very simpatico duo. Your booking process was very straightforward and my questions answered promptly.My wife thought it was a wonderful surprise. Many thanks to you and we reiterate our appreciation of their performance.”
“Greg and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for the wonderful entertainment that was performed at our wedding last Saturday. Everyone commented on how it helped make our special day that bit different. The process of organising the performances since the booking went smoothly also. Beautiful performances from the guitarist and dancer, you really helped bring that part of my Spanish culture into our wedding - I know my dad really appreciated it! Muchas gracias : )”
Natalia & Greg,
“I did not know what to expect but whatever those expectations might have been, they would have been exceeded. We were extremely happy with the act, the performance and with your service all of which was courteous and focussed. The performers were punctual. You may have heard that the guitarist slipped on the pavement on a filthy night but coped with that professionally and with humour so it did not impact on our evening: we hope he is ok? I was entirely captivated by the wonder of the presentation. He is a supremely gifted and accomplished guitarist and then they transported us into another world when the dancer stepped onto the floor to perform with such élan: one cannot, before witnessing Flamenco for the first time, imagine the nuance of the artistry of the footwork that is not then so much a dance as an integral part, or even the conductor, of the music. I not only laud these gifted people but recommend close attention to them whilst they are in their zone. Kate had a ball on her birthday, set up by the venue of La Bobina , and topped with the flare of the duo.”
“I have to say the Flamenco Trio were fantastic they arrived on time and had all their equipment in place before our evening began. Compliments have been flowing since Saturday and I would recommend them to any function - Thank you so much.”
Brenda Lowe, Worcestershire Golf Club
“Just wanted to let you know the Flamenco dance group did very well, I was very pleased with their performance. Thank you.”
Lenny Arnon, Travel Talk Tours
“Both the guitarist & dancer were superb, very authentic. Both were very prompt and suitably dressed and booking process was very straight forward and easy to deal with. Would highly recommend.”
Paul Keen, Verulam Golf Club
