César Páucar is a classically trained Andean guitarist whose musical interests range from classical to flamenco, from Latin to folk. He began performing during his teens as a flamenco guitarist in Peru, accompanying singers and dancers in Peruvian tablaos with the flamenco-jazz group “Raíces Flamencas.” At the same time, he studied Andean guitar with renowned guitarist Raúl García Zárate, a close friend of the family. García Zárate wasn’t his only guitar teacher, as César pursued his interest in flamenco music studying with Víctor Meléndez (founder of “Raíces Flamencas”) and also studied the Afro-Peruvian rhythms of the coast with Félix Casaverde. César left Perú in 1992 to attend Florida Atlantic University where he received Bachelors and Masters degrees in Latin American Literature. He has performed all across South Florida as a solo guitarist and worked with Latin guitar duo Strunz and Farah on transcriptions of their music. César has two solo recordings available: 2002’s “Rumbos Rítmicos” (Rhythm Roads) which showcases a variety of rhythms from coastal Peru and the Andes mountains, and 2003’s “Palahia Street” with rhythms from Latin America, ranging from Afro-Cuban to South American. He is a requested guitarist for the Regent Seven Seas Cruise line of passenger ships, having performed on the RSSC Voyager in 2005 and 2006 and the RSSC Mariner in the spring of 2007. César has just completed a third solo outing, entitled “De Amanecida” (At Dawn’s Door) consisting of Peruvian music with the collaboration of several renowned Peruvian artists’ such as Julio Tirado, Saywa, Lourdes Cárhuaz, and Rosa Guzmán. Also included will be the guitar duet “Cachondeo” written by fellow guitarist and friend Errol Putigna, featuring percussionist David Schanzer.
