Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Peña Peña, better known as Pedro Bacán, (1951-1997) was a flamenco guitarist and composer from Seville, Spain. Self-taught, Bacán learned how to play guitar as a soloist and accompanist. He devoted much of his professional life to re-inventing and preserving the traditional flamenco way of life, especially the traditional style and feeling of Lebrija. Consistent with this objective, he created and directed several flamenco theatrical shows. He also dedicated much of his time to directing his sister Inés Bacán`s career, and together they recorded music of the Lebrija flamenco tradition and performed all over Andalucía. In 1980 Bacán was awarded the "Jerez Cátedra de flamenco" national prize for the guitar, and in 1983 he was also honoured by the Musicology department of the University of Washington.

Gary Hayes is a flamenco guitarist and dance accompanist for the flamenco group Flamenco Alcala in Vancouver, Canada.

Jim Kuhn (1952-) is a flamenco guitarist, teacher, and former chef of Spanish cuisine. Since the early 1980s, Kuhn has promoted flamenco and Andalusian culture in Seattle, Washington, most notably as the founder of Spanish cuisine business Paella King. Kuhn studied flamenco music and culture in Andalucia, Spain. He has played professionally with Spanish dancers and singers and given lectures on flamenco music.
