Paco el lobo, Singer guitarist flamenco

As a lover of flamenco from a very early age, Paco started taking part in parties and tablaos where he met many important flamenco traditional singers.  Paco was initiated into cante jondo by the well-known artists Pepe El de la Matrona, Rafael Romero as well as Juan Varea. Over the years, he also specialized in singing for the dance, which gave him a great skill in compas and palmas.

During these years, Paco also studied flamenco guitar and took part in several ballets and flamenco troupes rounding out his overall training and helping him grow as an artist.

In the course of his career, Paco has created several musical groups gathering musicians and dancers.

As a teacher and a musician, Paco has taken part in a great number of dance, guitar and flamenco singing training courses.

He is often invited by various musical groups and he manages to join others while respecting the flamenco traditions and exploring new music.
