Benise performs tonight Feb. 24th at The Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg.
For Benise, music has always been a journey…from his humble beginnings as a street performer, to performing around the world. “I wanted to push the boundaries of traditional Nuevo Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of culture–the culmination of all the shows we’ve done over the last 10 years.” comments composer, virtuoso guitarist and creative force behind the event, BENISE.
