    Virtuoso 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 plus influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. 

    New York based Jose Moreno (percussion/vocals) is the son of two highly revered Spanish flamenco artists, dancer Estrella Morena and singer Pepe de Malaga. He has become one of the most sought after artists in the national flamenco scene, known for his tremendous musicality, virtuosity, and versatility combined with an inherent warmth that comes through his performances. Together, Pascual and Moreno have built a strong rapport after more than 10 years of frequent tours and collaborations, and bring a fresh and exhilarating energy to each performance.

    Since the 2003 release of his debut solo recording "Cosas en Comun", Pascual's international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, New York's Lincoln Center, and Blue Note Jazz Club, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid's renowned Casa Patas. He has performed with a lengthy 'who's who' of top flamenco artists including 2016 tour dates with Jorge Pardo (of Paco de Lucia’s legendary Sextet, Chick Corea’s Touchstone band) in addition to collaborations with a diverse range of musicians including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw, bassist John Patitucci (Chick Corea), pianist Danilo Perez (Wayne Shorter Qt), percussionist Jamey Haddad (Paul Simon), virtuoso guitarist Grisha Goryachev, and many others
