Ensemble in Residence
Spanish born, New York-resident guitarist and composer Oscar Peñas epitomizes a new wave of emerging artists who are an integral part of New York’s flourishing creative music scene whose work transcends and yet merges different genres, cultures and styles with fluidity, grace and power. While Peñas‘ music can be called “jazz,” it crosses the traditional boundaries of that idiom in his original compositions flavored with hints of flamenco and South American grooves.
Oscar Peñas will present his lastest album on April 18th, at BAMcafe
"Paco," is a tribute to guitarist Paco de Lucia, who has marked a before and after in modern flamenco, and one of my musician idols. Featuring violin and electric guitar, 6/8 rhythm evokes the feel of flamenco, from a personal perspective, never attempting to mimic or make an explicit reference to De Lucia's playing.
Music of Departures and Returns is my fourth album and second in the USA. It features other composer's songs for the first time in my recorded career and the choices often speak to personal experiences.
