Edward “El Pescadito“ Fishwick
Guitarist – “Flamencos anonimos“
Edward Fishwick began studying flamenco in the summer of 1993, the same day he heard the world-renowned virtuoso guitarist Paco de Lucía for the first time. From that day on, he dedicated himself to learning and playing this fantastic Spanish music. Fishwick began performing professionally in 1997, bringing this unique art to a wide variety of special events including weddings, corporate gatherings, private parties, and benefits. His audiences have included the Miss Budweiser powerboat racing team, acclaimed Spanish artist Royo, and Tonight Show host Jay Leno. Additionally, he performs in various ensembles and as an accompanist for flamenco singers and dancers. In 2005 Edward made his first trip to Andalucía, the southern most region of Spain, and the cradle of flamenco. There he studied with some of the greatest guitarists in Spain including David Serva, Emilio Maya, Paco Cortés and Rafael Santiago “Habichuela”. He returned to San Diego later that year to resume his musical studies at San Diego State University.
Jesus Soriano started performing when he was fifteen years old, two years after receiving his first guitar as a Christmas present. Born and raised in Madrid, Spain, he played in several rock bands while in his teens and moonlighted as a folk musician in several “Tunas and Estudiantinas”. Besides Flamenco, he pays special attention to old, traditional songs from different regions of Spain, and he particularly enjoys popular music with a strong social content. He came to San Diego directly from Madrid and he has performed in many local restaurants, as well as several TV programs representing the House of Spain with his catalonian partner Ben Garrido. One of his favourite quotes is “Just because I do it, doesn’t mean I’m good at it”.
Angelita Agujetas comes from the legendary Agujetas Family of Gypsy Flamenco singers. She was raised in Rota, a small town near Jerez de la Frontera. Her father was “El Viejo Agujetas”, a Gypsy blacksmith who studied with Manuel Torre and was renown for his pure interpretation of the oldest Gypsy flamenco cante. Her brother, Manuel Agujetas, is widely acclaimed as today’s most authentic and moving interpreter of cante jondo; he has recorded extensively, is featured in Carlos Saura’s film, Flamenco, and is the subject of, Agujetas Cantaor, a documentary by Dominique Abel. Angelita’s other siblings, Luis, Diego, Paco, el Gordo, and Juana are also cantaores as is her niece Dolores Agujetas and her nephew Antonio Agujetas.
