Heir to one of Spain's most prestigious and legendary Andalusian musical families (his grandmother was the great cantatrice La Perrata and his father, flamenco guitarist Tocaor), David Peña Dorantes has a natural passion for the art of flamenco pulsing through his veins. Studying piano at the Conservatorio Superior de Música in Seville as a young man, he is today highly regarded as one of the most creative and innovative flamenco piano virtuosos of our time. Drawing on a wide blend of musical styles for his compositions, he gracefully combines classical, jazz, Celtic or Brazilian into his melodies, a rare avant-garde style that has earned him countless international awards and accolades. Dorantes has released three acclaimed solo albums: Orobroy in 1998, Sur in 2001, and Sin muros in 2012. In 2015, the musician released Paseo a Dos, recorded and composed with bassist Renaud Garcia-Fons.
