Cristian Puig recently played the role of guitarist and singer "Joaquin" in the Alliance Theatre's production of "Zorro", and he has worked in films, such as A Late Quartet, for which he composed flamenco music for the soundtrack. He performs as a flamenco singer and guitarist across the United States of America and with his flamenco trio Puig-Sanchez-Moreno in his hometown of New York. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Cristian Puig is the son of flamenco singer Gloria Monreal and flamenco guitarist Pablo Puig. As a teenager, Cristian began his studies in classical guitar at the conservatory of Manuel de Falla as well as flamenco guitar with his father. Soon he took classes in flamenco guitar with Quique de Cordoba and furthered his studies in jazz, bossa nova and contemporary music. In 1990 he formed and toured South America with his group Rabat, fusing jazz, bossa nova and flamenco. Cristian released the CD "Entre Cuerdas" featuring flamenco-jazz fusion and has just released a new CD entitled Inflam project, which crosses Indian and Flamenco styles.
