Carlos Piñana in concert
Carlos Piñana and his troupe of authentic flamenco masters journey to Austin from southern Spain to present a thrilling display of intense rhythm and soulful song. Piñana belongs to a family of great flamenco tradition - he is the grandson of Antonio Piñana (father), patriarch of the “cantes mineros” and his father is the well-known guitarist Antonio Piñana (son). Carlos lived and breathed flamenco since childhood. His first guitar teacher was his father Antonio Piñana, who contributed from the start to Carlos’ development as a guitarist. Currently Carlos combines his work as a performer with his activity as a professor of Flamenco Guitar at the Music Conservatory of Murcia. He is also the Artistic Director of the Murcia International Guitar Festival.
