Gabriel Lautaro Osuna was born into a family of artists and musicians in New Mexico and began playing as a child. His first teacher was New Mexico legend Cipriano Vigil. Gabriel later studied with some of the greatest flamenco guitar masters both locally and in Spain including Chuscales, El Entri, El Viejín, Ramón Jiménez, Pedro Cuadra, Rafael Habichuela, Juan Maya Marote, Miguel Angel Cortés and David Marín. He has performed extensively in the United States and abroad.
Juan Siddi has been described by the Santa Fe New Mexican as “a bundle of beautiful energy tempered by technique and taste.” His high-profile presence in the United States where he directs, teaches, choreographs and performs for more than a decade, nominated him for various recognition archives such as San Francisco’s Isadora Duncan Award, and Santa Fe’s Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. Appearances include guest artist/ choreographer for Theatre Flamenco San Francisco. American Bolero Dance Company, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and most recently the 2021 Flamenco Festival Albuquerque.
