Miguel Peña Vargas “El Funi” + Juan del Gastor
Direct from Andalucía, Gypsy flamenco’s charismatic icon “El Funi” (Miguel Peña Vargas) returns to New York for his first solo concert in more than 20 years. He performs Flamenco song and dance with exceptional mastery highlighted by his gallant showmanship.
Juan Del Gastor was born in Moron de la Frontera and is a nephew of the legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor. A soulful guitarist, he has accompanied such revered singers as Camarón de la Isla and Fernanda de Utrera. A natural entertainer, Juan loves to sing and dance and his contagious good humor and spontaneity have sparked many an impromptu flamenco fiesta.
They will be joined by Sonia Olla & Ismael de la Rosa.
