Noche Gitano Flamenca At No Way Jose!
7:30pm - Saturday, December 5, 2020
Vallarta's own guitarists, Eduardo Leon, Juan Manuel Ramirez Oliveros and Ignacio Delgado Flores, inspire us with their passionate flamenco stylings.
Juan Manuel Ramirez Oliveros hails from Celaya, Guanajuato. He began playing the guitar at the age of 13 and was always involved with music classes since elementary school. With his first steps in music, he approached rock and blues. Jimmy Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and T-Bone Walker were always a part of his inspiration. With Paco de Lucia, he completely converted to flamenco technique, like many other guitarists who are "converted" by listening to the maestro's touch. Juan Manuel has played with many people from the flamenco community in Mexico and has had the opportunity to travel to places such as Cuba at the international dance festival and to the cradle of flamenco, Andalusia, Spain, where he had the opportunity to live with gypsies in a more natural and free way.
Ignacio Delgado Flores, guitarist originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, comes from a family of music lovers and musicians. Nacho began his studies as a guitarist at the age of 15 and he began to explore the world of rumba and world music, classical and traditional. His early years focused on studying the virtuoso Swedish guitarist Malmsteen on the electric guitar. Feeling passion for various genres, instruments and styles, he sought to expand his knowledge with different teachers of different genres, including flamenco, jazz, gypsy, Arabic and Greek music. Nacho's influences and his quest to develop his own style that will compile all of his tastes in a single individual has been his path of study and training.
Eduardo Leon needs no introduction to the live music lovers in Puerto Vallarta. Originally from Oaxaca, Lalo arrived in Vallarta in 2011. Affectionately referred to as "el maestro," Lalo's diverse style transcends the range and limits of every genre. He contributes his excellent guitar stylings generously with local Vallarta performers and guest entertainers such as Piel Canela, Kim Kuzma, Amy Armstrong and Spencer Day, to name just a few. Lalo lives his life according to a simple credo: "I always say yes," which leads him on a path of exciting musical adventures and a life worth living.
