Luis Victor Perez is a guitarist, interpreter and composer. He was born in Jaén in 1979, where he grew up, immersed in music, being part of different several music groups. It was there that his passion for flamenco was born, and Victor took his first lessons with Paco Aguilar in a “peña flamenca” a so-called flamenco meeting place.
Later on, as a part of his music formation, he joined up with Lourdes Castillo´s flamenco group, the guitarist, José Manuel Moreno and also trained with Juan Ballesteros (Linares) and Juan Carlos “el nano” (Andújar). Later on he started to give lessons in Jaen and Villa del Río.
Victor’s family is one of musicians and artists, originally from Priego de Córdoba, to where he eventually moved. There he continued to teach and to give concerts, drawing from the love and special sensitivity for music received from his family since childhood.
Victor started to create his own interpretation of flamenco, and so attracting young and old, personal fans and music experts. His style is one suitable for all audiences and in his shows, people experience Victor’s personal themes, which offer new touches of his own musical interpretations. The flamenco becomes intimate and contagious in each of his compositions.
He also plays well-known versions of Vicente Amigo, David Peña Dorantes, Paco de Lucía, Camarón, Sabicas…and in his concerts Victor and his musicians bring us to the heart of flamenco.
