Now Norbert and Renato are bringing to the stage another exciting musical production in which the style of the two guitarists creates a striking contrast. In this alloy, we can hear the works of Renato and Norbert in an interesting way for both genres.
Renato Pavesi is internationally renowned, has toured Western Europe in the last few years, and has also played in Seville, London, Berlin and Milan. He has been invited several times to Korea, Japan and toured in Iraq. He received one of his most outstanding invitations from Brian May, the Queen's guitarist, at the Royal Garden Hotel in London. Initially Renato mastered the guitar arts, then graduated with a degree in Music from Kingston University, London, where he studied with the famous Eric Clapton. Renato was born and raised in Budapest, of Italian-Hungarian descent, and perhaps his musical diversity comes from here. In addition to learning from the world-famous Juan Martin and Robert Svärd, Hungarian folklore has a major influence on his musical work.
The Casi Flamenco show is based on the elements of flamenco styles. They guide the audience through the tracks of flamenco featuring several tracks including the latest flamenco hits.
