The “fire-breathing guitar hero” as he was dubbed by the U.S. press… Latin Grammy winner, guitar composer and revolutionary, El Twanguero is coming to the Corazon Performing Arts! His style has become known internationally for his particular Twang sound that oscillates between Spanish guitar, American folk, flamenco and tango, and for his impeccable mastery of finger picking.
“… The Twanguero is a trip to the heart of music …”
– REVISTA ROLLING STONE ARGENTINA
Twanguero presents the Pachuco show with his band: rhythm, percussion, seductive melodies as well as electrifying riffs and solos, and the one and only touch of his golden Gibson, pioneer of ‘Latin-Twang”.
Pachuco refers to a particular old school subculture of Latino Americans from the 1930’s – the 1950’s associated with zoot suits, and vibrant, flamboyant nightlife. Originating in Mexico, Pachuco eventually made its way to El Paso, Texas. Hence, El Paso became known to many as “El Chuco.” Pachuco was also an important part of the young Mexican-American culture in the 1950’s.
“… A teacher of the guitar …”
– GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ
Known for his work with flamenco cantaor Diego El Cigala, Twanguero launched his successful solo career after years of accompanying Latin music giants such as Bunbury, Calamaro, El Cigala, and others. He has achieved major accomplishments in the last couple years: memorable albums such as his latest, Pachuco and Argentina Songbook (Warner Music), and has toured Spain, Mexico, America from South to North and other parts of the world. El Twanguero has received excellent reviews and become an international Gibson and Bigsby artist.
