Guitarist de Alva to bring Flamenco culture to Fallbrook

FALLBROOK – The Friends of the Fallbrook Library present a free Flamenco Cultural Experience complete with music, dancing and singing on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m.

David de Alva was born in Madrid, Spain, while both his parents were touring with the internationally known Flamenco Dance Company, Pilar Lopez. Musical diversity is one of de Alva 's most distinguished traits. He has performed in New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Madrid, Seville, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Seattle and San Diego.

He began studying guitar at the age of 10 under protegees of Segovia and the Romero Brothers, quickly distinguishing himself for his technique and charisma. Subsequently, as a lead performer in various festivals and theaters throughout the world, from Brazil to Spain, he perfected his style that is now recognized as one of the best in the field, expressing the explosion of rhythms and emotions that contain the passion of the Spanish people.

An artist endowed with a highly individual talent and artistic temperament, de Alva takes his audience into the heart of Spanish culture. He offers over 35 years of experience both as solo guitarist and Flamenco recording artist. He will be accompanied by a singer and dancer.
