Cantaor, Flamenco Singer
Roberto Zamora has been actively involved in flamenco for 50 years. After having begun studying flamenco dance and cante in 1970, he went to Spain in 1973 to immerse himself in "flamenco gitano". At this time he was fortunate to be embraced by the "Gastor" family of Morón de la Frontera which extended to the gitanos of Utrera and Lebrija and Jerez de la Frontera, in short, many of the legendary flamenco artists of that time. These life-long, close friendships have enriched his life all these years and become an integral part of the flamenco he represents. Although he was a solo dancer and singer for many years, working in all the major dance companies of the Bay Area and some in other states, he in later life specialized in being a "festero" dancer/singer in the vein of his friends Anzonini del Puerto, Miguel "El Funi", Paco de Valdepeñas and others. His singing for dancers is inspired by his knowledge of dance and the intensity and intimate soul connection he was fortunate to witness over the many years of experiencing this art form in gitano family settings in Spain and the USA when his favorite artists would come to perform here. He is intimate friends with the gitanos of his generation and is a welcome guest at flamenco gatherings in Andalucia, the heartbeat of flamenco.
Guitar, Music Theory
Jesse Torre began studying guitar at the age of ten, and in his studies has developed an unwitting passion for playing and teaching. Bay Area native Jesse has studied with classical guitarist Angel Miguel Lejarza Leo, flamenco guitar virtuoso Jason Mcguire, and has worked under the mindful instruction of classical guitarist Nicholas Goluses at the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, New York. There Jesse completed his Bachelors in Music (Classical Performance) with distinction, and was honored with a Performer’s Certificate, demonstrating excellence in guitar performance. During his undergraduate studies, Jesse performed in masterclasses led by the prestigious GFA winner, Tengyue Zhang, and Bach expert, Paul Galbraith. His time at Eastman has given him a strong background in music theory; he is an advocate for the written and aural analysis of music, and stresses the importance of composition and instrumental exploration. As a performer and teacher, Jesse specializes in flamenco and classical guitar, though he offers instruction in a variety of genres including: folk, blues, fingerstyle, pop, rock and rumba, to name a few. As a theory educator, Jesse covers theoretical concepts dating as far back as the Baroque, and addresses concepts of harmony and improvisation that overlap with aspects of jazz and contemporary music. Lessons are tailored to meet each individual student’s needs, interests, and various learning styles in order to ensure enthusiasm and musical growth. His patience and humor make learning fun.
