Flamenco Maestro Paco Peña Comes To Hong Kong
Why We Recommend it
Paco Peña, one of the world’s foremost traditional Flamenco players, will come to Hong Kong for a performance showcasing the essence of Flamenco music and dance.
Spanish Flamenco composer and guitarist Paco Peña (b. 1942) has played a leading role in the popularisation and wide acceptance of the art form for the last fifty years.
Flamenco includes song, guitar, dance, vocalisations, clapping and finger-snapping, and has developed its own characteristic musical language. Peña has extended and expanded the art of Flamenco guitar from its original role as an accompaniment to dance and song, to an instrumental form in its own right and the centre of multi-media creation, as well as introduce an element of the spoken word to it.
In his Hong Kong concert, entitled ‘Paco Peña and Friends – Esencias’, Peña will showcase the essence of the art form and explore possibilities of the guitar in relation to Flamenco.
