CARLOS PIÑANA    

Carlos Piñana was first taught the flamenco guitar by his father, Antonio, who was a famous classical guitarist in his own right. In fact Carlos was from a celebrated musical family, his grandfather, also Antonio, being a founder and leader of cantes mineros, a type of Andalusia folk music. Carlos then progressed to the conservatory in his home city, Cartagena, as a ten year old. During 8 years of classical study, he demonstrated a wonderful technique and `feel` for flamenco. So it wasn`t surprising that he went on to win several top competitions and prestigious awards.

He has toured major cities in Spain and the rest of the world and released six albums. Listen to samples of these on: http://www.carlospinana.com
