Quique Sinesi

A Special Message From Bernardo
Last November I received a call from Julio Santillan. He informed me that Quique Sinesi was performing at the Ibero-American Guitar Festival in Washington DC and Julio wanted me to invite Quique to play at El Taller.

I did not know who Quique was but I called him in Buenos Aires and he kindly accepted my invitation. I apologized in advance for not having enough time to supply him with the audience that he deserved. We worked "Taller" style and sent one of those "emergency" email blasts and crossed our fingers.

Sunday, November 10th, was one of the coldest, snowiest nights of the year but the Taller audience proved their loyalty and a standing room only audience was entranced by Quique's guitar for over 2 hours. Magic happened that night, a man gave birth, 2 women learned to fly---I am kidding, but that space of music that Quique created is still here.

QUIQUE SINESI is returning to El Taller on April 25th at 8pm. Be sure not to miss this very special event.



Born in Argentina, Quique Sinesi's distinctive music is a mix of elements that includes Argentinean Folklore, Tango, Jazz, Classical and contemporary sounds. His compositions have been edited in France (Lemoine), Japan (Gendai), Belgium (Ediciones Latinoamericanas) and Argentina (Riccordi). He made several recordings and International "Solo" tours with different projects. He founded with Matias Gonzalez and Horacio Lopez the trio "Alfombra Magica".
