From Punk Rock to Flamenco, This Guitarist Has Enjoyed an Interesting Musical Career

Cap your Christmas celebrations with smooth stylings by one of the most notable flamenco guitarists out of Texas. On Wednesday, Randy Cordero will perform live at the swanky Naranja Bar in Hotel Valencia Riverwalk. Treat yourself to an evening of delicious cuisine, top-shelf cocktails and live music by Cordero on December 26th starting at 5:00 p.m.

Randy Cordero began his career as a professional musician in high school when this self-taught guitarist could be found performing electric guitar in professional venues throughout South Texas. In his youth, Cordero experimented with a variety of rock genres from alternative, gothic, skate, and shoegazer to punk rock.

A chance performance by the famous flamenco guitarist, Paco de Lucia, ignited Randy's deep passion for flamenco guitar. Today, Cordero may be seen performing traditional Spanish flamenco guitar with flamenco dance companies all over Texas or in collaboration with Latin-Jazz guitarists creating a unique blend of flamenco-Latin jazz music.

For the last 20 years, Cordero has refined his talents, studying Spanish flamenco guitar all over the US and Spain with prestigious guitarists including Jose Luis Rodriguez, Rene Heredia, Chuscales, Domingo Rubichi, Roberto Castellon, Paco Garrigues, and Kai Narezo.

Cordero’s style is a blend of traditional Jerez-style flamenco and contemporary influences. He has worked closely with The Flamenco Poets Society of Houston where his work has received recognition from many organizations, including Poets and Writers, Inc.
