Guitarist Juanito Pascual has been called “one of the hottest flamenco guitarists to emerge in recent years” by NPR. Pascual’s sound is an organic blend of his mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco with influences from heroes ranging from Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, to the Grateful Dead and J.S. Bach. Pascual's trio features the percussion wizardry of Grammy-nominated artist Tupac Mantilla, and the propulsive and inventive playing of bassist Brad Barrett.
"Fearsome acoustic guitar chops and exquisite taste in collaborators"
-The Boston Phoenix
"Juanito....combines vivid colors, a rich imagination and a yearning, never satisfied mastery of his art"
-Steve Morse, Contributing writer to Billboard and Rolling Stone
Since the 2003 release of his debut solo recording "Cosas en Comun" Pascual's international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the New York's 92nd ST. Y and Blue Note Jazz Club, Tanglewood Jazz Festival, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid's renowned Casa Patas. He has performed with a lengthy 'who's who' of top flamenco artists form Spain and the U.S. in addition to collaborations with a diverse range of artists including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw, bassist John Patitucci (of Chick Corea's Band), pianist Danilo Perez (of the Wayne Shorter Qt), percussionist Jamey Haddad (of Paul Simon's group) and many others. Juanito made his on-screen debut in the 2009 release "Pink Panther 2" alongside Steve Martin and Andy Garcia.
A passionate advocate for the environment Juanito has been honored to participate in events in support of Junglewood - a visionary arts and rain-forest restoration project with co-founders including Herbie Hancock, the Jane Goodall foundation, and others - in one the most bio-diverse spots on the planet in Panama's Rain Forest.
