Class: June 10-16 @ 12 noon SEBASTIAN SANCHEZ Flamenco singer Sebastian Sanchez was born in 1995 in Puerto de Santa María on the southern coast of Spain in the province of Cádiz, birthplace of many legendary flamenco singers. Born into a family of flamenco artists, his uncle is the well-known flamenco dancer Paco del Puerto, a veteran of many international performances. When he was two years of age, Sebastian began listening to and clapping out the complex rhythms of flamenco. His father Vicente Sanchez accompanied him on the guitar, both in his practice sessions and early performances. It is from this experience that he developed his life-long love for the flamenco guitar which he learned to play to accompany himself in his studies of flamenco singing or, as it is called in Spain, “el cante.” At the age of 16 he began private classes with the flamenco singer Nazareth Cala, herself a former student of the revered flamenco singers Naranjito de Triana and José de la Tomasa. At the age of seventeen, he traveled to Seville to begin training in flamenco singing at the Fundacion Flamenco Cristina Heeren. Upon graduation he began working in many flamenco venues in Seville with some of Spain’s most prestigious flamenco performers: among them Carmen Ledesma and Juan Betanzos. His career continued with appearances in Madrid, Germany and Poland. In 2017 he was a finalist in the competition Premio Nacional Bailes Por Alegrias Peña La Perla de Cai. Since then, Sebastian Sanchez has traveled the width and length of Spain, performing in venues as diverse as flamenco peñas, flamenco clubs and large theatres. The following are some of the major venues where he has appeared: Peña Flamenca Paco Cepero in Puerto de Santa María Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville with Carmen Ledesma and Pepe Torres Teatro Quintero in Seville Auditorio Municipal Granada with the flamenco gutarist Alberto López Teatro Lope de Vega in Seville Tablao Los Gallos in Seville Tablao Flamenco Cortijo in Stuttgart, Germany Festival Flamenco de Jerez with Juanillorro Tertulia Flamenca Pepe Alconchel in Jerez with the guitarist Jesus Rodríguez La Casa de la Memoria in Seville Peña Flamenca Torres Macarena in Seville Táculo “De Arte” with David Perez y su compañia Peña Flamenca Amigos del Chuma with the guitarist Jesus Rodríguez The production “Mi Clave” with Manuel de la Luz which recently premiered in Cerro de Andevalo, Huelva
