Arab Flamenco Music with Juanito Pascual and Abdul-Wahab Kayyali

Juanito Pascual has been called one of the greatest American flamenco guitarists. He is a multifaceted guitarist, composer, and teacher who has performed in styles ranging from jazz and blues, to classical guitar, as well as flamenco. Based in Boston, Juanito tours frequently throughout the United States and has played for most of the country's major flamenco dance companies including those of Omayra Amaya, Ramon de los Reyes, Jose Greco II, Carlota Santana, La Repompa de Malaga, Ines Arrubla, and Susana di Palma. He has performed in major festivals around the country including Tanglewood Jazz Festival, Albuquerque's Festival Flamenco Internacional, Yale's International Festival of Arts and Ideas, and New York City's Fringe Festival

Abdul-Wahab Kayyali was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1982 to a Jordanian family of Palestinian origin. He began studying the Oud in 1989 in the National Music Conservatory in Amman, Jordan under the tutelage of Sakher Hattar. He participated in numerous musical performances and festivals with the Arab Music Ensemble of the Conservatory, including the Jerash Festival in Jordan, Fomgad Festival in Istanbul, Turkey, Spring Festival in Ankara, Turkey, and the Arab Music Festival in Cairo, as well as performances in Lebanon and Germany. During the course of his study, Abdul-Wahab was fortunate enough to be mentored by Munir Bashir, the great Iraqi Oud virtuoso and one of the greatest Arab musicians of the twentieth century. Abdul-Wahab won the first prize in the Young Musicians of the Gulf competition in Manama, Bahrain, in 2000.
