Music at the Casa: Omar Blanco

Omar Blanco began studying guitar at the age of 8 with Victor Sainz, in Elizabeth, N.J. When Omar’s sister returned from studying in Spain, she told him about the amazing Flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia, who played in fingerstyle, unlike others.

Starting in the 1980s, Omar began studying with another legendary flamenco guitar master in New York City, Mario Escudero. Omar considers studying with Escudero to be the highlight of his guitar studies.
