Coming from a family musicians and visual artists, Michael Prez aka Miguelito went on to major in classical guitar performance at California State University, Fullerton. A year before graduating, he stumbled upon a flamenco party and fell instantly in love with the art form.
Literally the day after receiving his Bachelor of Music Degree, Miguelito got on a plane and headed to Washington DC where he had a flamenco dance class accompanist job waiting for him at George Washington University.
As he played for dance classes for various teachers, recitals and concerts, word got around and before he knew it, Miguelito was playing for just about every flamenco dance company in the DC area including Danza del Ro, Spanish Dance Society, Ana Martnez Flamenco Dance Company, Natalia Montelen’s Arte Flamenco, Ziva’s Spanish Dance Ensemble and Furia Flamenca.
Since his arrival in the DC flamenco scene in 1991, Miguelito continues to perform with local flamenco dancers and singers every week at local clubs and restaurants and occasional theatre and festival performances. He most frequently works with flamenco dancers Ginette, Pam de Ocampo, Kyoko, Sarah Castellanos and Sara Jerez.
