Warm, intricate, unique, refreshing..Flamenco guitarist Anthony Garcia and his quartet are providing a level of attractive, jazzed up flamenco which is uncommon outside Spain. As a soloist, Anthony has played for many recognizable corporate groups in many industries, as well as for many weddings and other private events. The quartet is booking weddings and other corporate and private events throughout southern California.
Few flamenco musicians attempt to perform the modern, highly syncopated, contemporary music the quartet is now playing. The music ranges from mellow, haunting arrhythmic song forms, to the upbeat, fun rumba, into the fastest of flamenco song forms. The music is rooted in traditional song forms, but incorporates concepts from many other musical styles.
The quartet consists of 2 percussionists, a bassist and flamenco guitar. The percussive instrumentation can be adjusted to fit the role the client needs for their event. For an extra strong presence, flamenco dance can be included.
Solo, duo and trio options are also available.
The musicianship of the group members allows the quartet to express a very wide variety of fresh sounding music that really engages music lovers.
