Roni Benise is one of the few musicians who has earned the rare distinction of being known only by one name.
“Benise,” as many of his fans know his as, is a flamenco artist who hails from an unlikely place. Judging by his music, many would think that he hails from a tropical land such as Miami or the Caribbean; but, in reality, Benise grew up among the cornfields of Nebraska, a state not normally known for producing great flamenco artists.
After he graduated from high school, Benise moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career. When he heard flamenco music for the first time on radio, Benise knew that he had found his calling. After refining his sound as a street performer, in which he mixes his flamenco with salsa, tango, and samba, he released his first album in 2000, and ever since, his stature has grown within the Latin music world.
2018 will celebrate his 10-year anniversary in the music business, and to celebrate, he’ll be hitting the road for the Fuego! Spirit of Spain tour. The tour will certainly sell out, so for those looking for tickets, here is the complete itinerary and ticket information.
