Before moving to New York in 2009, Nacho was chiefly known as one of Spain’s most sought after Flamenco percussionists. As a child, Nacho had been classically trained as a pianist and vocal soloist but turned to percussion in his teens. Flamenco was a break with the formalism of his early training. Academies, tablaos and baile were his school for eight years and he collaborated with Joaquín Cortés, Gerardo Nuñez and Rocio Molina, along with many of Spain’s hottest Flamenco dancers. Nacho’s diverse capabilities ultimately steered him into the broader scopes of World music and Jazz, where he has performed and recorded with Lionel Loueke, Lizz Wright and Angelique Kidjo.
