I am a guitarist/musician who has been playing since 1986, and who has been performing the style of solo instrumental Flamenco/Latin guitar on and off since around 1992. I began playing in the style of Rumba Flamenco around that time, and then integrated Latin guitar styles such as Bossa Nova and Mexican Traditional into my playing and perform some traditional flamenco styles such as Solea, Alegria, and Tangos as well.
In the particular guitar style, I have performed both solo as well as in a duo called Los Sonidos, and have also recorded a solo CD of Latin/Flamenco instrumental guitar entitled “Soledad,” which contains 3 originals as well as 3 standards from other artists such as Gipsy Kings, Ruben Fuentes, and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
In my extensive career as a guitarist, I have performed on many numerous occasions for various settings including art openings, weddings, coffee houses, corporate functions, and private parties.
The music I perform in the Flamenco/Latin style is a blend of both modern and traditional flamenco forms, as well as some modern popular music done in the style of Flamenco.
In my playing style, I bring technique, dynamics, excitement, passion, and expression to the fold. So if you would like to add class and ambiance to your occasion by having solo flamenco guitar, I am available. And if you hire me, you won’t be disappointed.

Alonso created the exact vibe I wanted for my son and daughter-in-law’s backyard wedding reception; mellow, romantic, and memorable! All the guests commented on how beautifully he played. Definitely keeping his info for future events!

Private Party•Reviewed on April 23, 2022•From Alpharetta, GA
Alonso and his flamenco guitar was the perfect accent for our daughter’s Spanish themed engagement party. He was actually early when informed that the party would start before we asked him to begin. He played beautifully and was very accommodating to any request. He totally “took care of” himself and made it stress free for us. No small thing! Alonso is an absolute pleasure to work with and to listen to. Would not hesitate to ask him to entertain at any function.

Alonso was prompt in his response during the booking process, and answered any questions that we had. He arrived on time to our event and left himself enough time to get set up and in place. He was fantastic to work with and our guest really enjoyed his live entertainment at our Spanish Wine Mixer.
