Emilio brings fiery passion, rhythm, energy, and love to his music. He skillfully blends elements of Spanish Flamenco guitar with South American, African and Middle Eastern rhythms, and then adds touches of modern and new age influences which make his music for both a meaningful and energetic experience.
Emilio has been exposed to different cultures, which have helped in the development of his music. “While growing up, I always had a variety of music and culture around me. One minute listening to very profound Flamenco music, and the next, dancing to Merengue music in the living room,” Emilio explains. “These things stay with you as you grow up.”
Emilio returned to Europe to work and perfect his art. He stayed for a total of four years playing his guitar at small clubs and restaurants. Although he spent most of that time in Rome, Italy, he traveled through most of Europe and South America. “I love the Mediterranean culture and people but I must say that I met wonderful people and saw beautiful things throughout all my travels.”
