“Jose Luis possess a rare and sought after ‘signature sound,’ a tone uniquely and instantly recognizable as his and his alone. In addition, he has a passion, love and understanding of multiple musical genres. This makes him uniquely qualified to envision musical innovation as few others can.
He is able to combine his prodigious talent on the guitar, featuring the complex sub-divisions and rhythms of Flamenco music, with the sophisticated harmonic possibilities of a big band or a Classical Orchestra”.
Colin Farish (Producer/Composer)
De la Paz Ensemble
Unlike other flamenco fusion projects, in this new work, Jose Luis and the other artists involved, create new spaces for compositions with a fresh and innovative sound that remains distinctively personal.
The band is made up of musicians with a variety of cultural and musical backgrounds, whose experiences create a synergistic experience filled with vitality, virtuosity, passion and the highest musical quality.
Origin & Evolution
In this concert, Jose Luis returns to the classic pieces he learned while apprenticing with Mario Escudero, but he removes the packaging and reimagines their interpretive and compositional essence, while regenerating and reaffirming his own compositional style. With this, he brings audiences to a renewed understanding of the process of becoming a flamenco composer, as well as, a deeper appreciation of the flamenco guitar as a solo instrument.

Multidisciplinary & Experimental Work
Resonancias is an experience created from family stories...Places and people we never met, to whom we give form, color and movement in our minds: legends that affect us emotionally and are part of who we are.
It is an emotional journey through the guitar that visits the experiences I did not live in an attempt to understand the complexities of the human mind. A space for reflection where the sounds of the guitar travel through the echoes of the family legacy embedded in memory.
