Join world-class flamenco musicians as they explore the limits of flamenco dance, composition and improvisation. Tierra y Mar; Flamenco dance and guitar; contrasts tradition and innovation, expression and discipline.

Paul Bosauder is in many respects a cultural ambassador, performing around the world as a highly regarded flamenco guitarist and composer, promoting his love of this music along with his love for his country of origin – New Zealand. Following more than ten years living, working, studying and creating with Spain’s elite flamenco artists, Paul received Matricula de Honor while completing his studies at ESMUC (Escuela Superior de Musica de Cataluña). 

In 2018 he introduced Australasia to his work resulting in a completely sold-out summer tour. Paul’s debut flamenco guitar album Tierra y Mar, reached #1 on the NZ Independent Album charts across all genres. This summer, Tierra y Mar expands to include the talents of the multi award-winning flamenco dancer, Triana who will interpret traditional flamenco styles as well as Paul’s compositions. Triana has worked alongside top flamenco artists like Trini de la isla, Gabriel de la Tomasa, Nino de los reyes and Olga Llorente. The performance also includes talented percussionist Lito Manez and the cante (singing) of Thais Hernandez.

"[Paul is]...a sensitive and emotive performer with a deep understanding of flamenco music. His compositions are original and full of personality but still respectful to the traditions and building blocks of true flamenco music”. - Award-winning Spanish producer Alberto Lopez

"Paul is breaking down geographic boundaries to remind us that flamenco belongs to all of us. His music and playing projects an unrivaled artistic personality" - Norberto Torres Cortes, La Musa y el Duende No. 18, Flamenco Magazine (Sevilla 2018)

"An elegant work, expressive and true to the heart of flamenco." - Toni Carrasco, Naciódigital (Barcelona 2018)
