Biography

Mojcar Flamenco began in 1996 at an artists' retreat in Mojcar, a village in southern Spain. There, guitarist composer Stephen Dick wrote a series of pieces blending tradtional flamenco with Latin Jazz.

That music became the core repertoire of Mojcar Flamenco. Since then, Stephen and the band have taken that music across the U.S. and Canada and back to Spain.

Meanwhile, Stephen has received multiple awards from the Spanish Ministry of Culture for his innovative music as well as an L.A. Treasures award and has appeared on Spanish television.

Mojcar Flamenco features Stephen on guitar, accompanied by some of the best flamenco musicians in Southern California. Mojcar also features flamenco dancer Katerina Toms whose fierce footwork percussion drives Mojcar's powerful rhythms.
