Who is Paco Serrano?

Paco Serrano is a Flamenco guitarist from Córdoba.

At the age of 12 he was studying at the Flamenco Academy of Merengue de Córdoba, his sister Luisa learning dance with Merengue's wife Concha Calero at the same location. For recreation, he accompanied the dance of his sister, and the singers in the Peña Flamenca de Córdoba.

Following a TV appearance in 1980 with his teachers' troupe, he served his apprenticeship as accompanist to many major flamenco singers, such as Fosforito, La Niña de La Puebla, Juanito Valderrama, Chano Lobato, El Chocolate, José Mercé, Luís de Córdoba and Carmen Linares.

The late '80s and early '90s saw him winning several national prizes, culminating in both the Premio Manolo de Huelva for accompaniment and the Premio Ramón Montoya for solo guitar at the Concurso Nacional de Arte Flamenco.

In 1996 he graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Rotterdam Conservatory, giving him the formal qualifications necessary to take up the position of Professor at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Córdoba, which he still holds.
