Blending wild Gypsy Rumba guitars with Latin & Cuban influences, Berto & Vincent have been wowing audiences with their untamed style.
From the flying fingers of Berto o Sales, to Vincent Zorn’s percussive rhythm, these two seasoned musicians are making a mark with their uplifting performances.
Performing every Thursday at The Bebedero
With ten albums to his credit, Vincent’s profound guitar work unites the fire of Flamenco, the sophistication of Jazz, and the relaxed sensuality of Bossa Nova together into a rich musical experience. His sound has been likened to Nouveau Flamenco artists such as Ottmar Liebert, rumba super-group The Gipsy Kings, and legendary flamenco guitarist Manitas De Plata. Vincent has studied in Spain, Turkey, and most recently in Mexico with International Recording Artists The Blonde Gypsies : Latcho & Andrea www.latchoandrea.com.
Drawing influence from the gypsies of Southern France, he developed his unique percussive technique that utilizes a diverse array of strumming styles, rhythms, and taps.
As a founder and composer of flamenco-dance band Last Caravan, gypsy guitar/violin duo Vincent & Vedant, he has toured extensively and now resides in Charlottesville, Virginia where he performs weekly as Berto & Vincent
Vincent uses Jose Luis Diaz Reyes Flamenco Guitars & Daniel Mari Strings exclusively.
