Meet Paco Fernandez
Francisco Fernández Moreno, otherwise known as Paco Fernández is a renowned flamenco guitarist, known for his experimentation between the sounds of the flamenco guitar and electronics.
Young Paco was remarkably gifted with his musical abilities. He played around local island bars (here in Ibiza) in the company of his relatives almost every night during his childhood before he went off to study classical guitar in Barcelona.
After his studies, Paco met his wife, an American citizen, and together they decided to emigrate to the United States, where Paco earned a living playing in numerous bars and venues.
Paco received word that Xavier Cugat was interested in producing and promoting the young guitarist and so he returned to Barcelona, where in 1986 he recorded “Vivir en el Mediterráneo”, a work of his own composition, in the company of Kitflus, Rafael Escuté and Santi Arisa, very notable Catalan jazz musicians of the moment.
Despite the interest aroused in Barcelona, upon returning to Ibiza, the musical community of the recent “Chillout” movement also showed great enthusiasm for his work. His style received the new classification of “Flamenco Chill”, and Paco was praised as the creator of the new movement.
Paco has toured many European and international countries including Romania, Hong Kong, Moscow, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as major cities like London, Manchester, Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Maastricht, Nice, Milan, Rome and Athens, both as a solo artist and accompanied by a band of 10 musicians.
It is always a pleasure to have Paco Fernandez as our guest musician year after year at Pura Vida Beach Restaurant with his spectacular band and entertainers including, Dancer, Pianist, Juanma Redondo, and Voice and Electronics, Steve Dr Gwon.
Mondays with Paco Fernandez and Flamenco Chill is certainly one to remember!
