Flamenco Guitar

Flamenco is a unique art form that takes years to learn and master. When I decided I wanted to study Flamenco I went to live in Granada, Spain, and studied with local teachers.

GUITARIST FOR THE MUSICAL ART QUINTET

The Musical Art Quintet

Under the direction of Sascha Jacobsen, The Musical Art Quintet has an outstanding lineup of musicians, repertoire and musical arrangements.

GUITARIST FOR TANGO GROUP

Los Tangueros del Oeste

Directed by Sascha Jacobsen, Los Tangueros Del Oeste is steeped in the nuevo tango styles of Astor Piazzolla, Gotan Project, and Bajo Fondo. Focusing on Jacobsen’s original compositions, the group combines beats and textures from electronica, with influences from flamenco filtered through an improvisational lens. The band’s singular nuevo tango sound is cool and impassioned, sensuous, seductive and utterly dance-inducing.

MUSIC PRODUCTION / CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS​

Bakiro

Director Miguel New wrote and produced this fun animated short film in 2017. He wrote the script and created a unique language for every animal in the film. I wrote and arranged the music with Sebastian “Nayche” New. We tried many singers to find the right voices, which was not easy… not every singer can sound like a wild boar or a chicken!

Soja
