About Rafael Riqueni:
Rafael Riqueni is a Spanish flamenco guitar player and composer.
He is considered as one of the biggest names in flamenco guitar history. One of Riqueni´s main characteristics is his capacity as a solo concert player, without the need of a backing group. This performance consists of solo flamenco guitar and musical arrangements. Rafael Riqueni’s music takes flamenco as a basis, plus classical music influences among other contemporary styles, highlighting the power and grace of Flamenco. At age fourteen, he won the two main national awards for flamenco guitar in Spain. As an adult, he has won the most prestigious flamenco music awards in Spain, including “XXXI Compas del Cante”, an award referred to by the Spanish media as the “Flamenco Nobel prize”.
