Considered by many as one of the best guitarists in Spain, EL TWANGUERO invites all kinds of audiences to see and hear him perform, including guitar fans, entertainment fans, and people of all ages who enjoy great music.
The “fire-breathing guitar hero” as he was dubbed by the U.S. press, launched his successful solo career after years of accompanying Latin music giants such as Bunbury, Calamaro, El Cigala, and others. He has achieved major accomplishments in the last couple years: memorable albums such as his latest, PACHUCO and ARGENTINE SONGBOOK (Warner Music), and has toured Spain, Mexico, America from South to North and other parts of the world. EL TWANGUERO has received excellent reviews and become an International Gibson and Bigsby artist.
TWANGUERO presents the PACHUCO show with his band: rhythm, percussion, seductive melodies as well as electrifying riffs and solos, AND the one and only touch of his golden Gibson, pioneer of ‘Latin-Twang”. He also has an important career as a guitar concertist.
Pachuco refers to a particular old school subculture of Latino Americans from the 1930’s – the 1950’s associated with zoot suits, and vibrant, flamboyant nightlife. Originating in Mexico, Pachuco eventually made its way to El Paso, Texas. Hence, El Paso became known to many as “El Chuco .” Pachuco was also an important part of the young Mexican-American culture in the 1950’s.
