This performance of cante (song) and toque (guitar playing) will create the atmosphere of a Flamenco show in Andalusia, in the South of Spain. Flamenco singer, Alfonso Cid, and guitarist, Juanito Pascual, will take the audience on a journey in time and space where they will be able to experience this culture, the poetry of the lyrics, the beauty and the excitement of the music, and rhythms of Flamenco.

He has been the recipient of two scholarships to study Cante Flamenco at the Cristina Heeren Foundation for Flamenco Art in Seville.
