ALFONSO CID - Flamenco Vocals and Flute
Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. His mother, an amateur singer from Triana, a flamenco enclave in Seville, and his grandfather, an aficionado of flamenco, were his earliest influences.  He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso enrolled at the Seville Conservatory in 1990 to study flute and music theory. He was awarded two scholarships to attend the intensive summer course at the Cristina Heeren Foundation for Flamenco Art on July 2007 and 2008 in Sevilla. He had the honor of recording backing vocals in the song titled Mi Santa on the album Formula Vol. 1 by popular Latin artist Romeo Santos in which the great flamenco guitarist Tomatito was a featured guest artist.  Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last July and August of 2017 with his newest Jazz/Flamenco band, the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain. He released his first CD titled Flamenco de vuelta e ida on 2006 with his own Flamenco fusion project Gazpacho Andalú and flamenco guitarist Arturo Martínez. He has also released an album with the Spanish Indie Rock project Dientes de Caramelo titled Pulpo (Octopus) in March of 2012 as well as three new singles throughout the summer of 2015.
