Guitarist Juan Benavides brought his neo-flamenco vision to Asheville in 2002, and Cabo Verde has been a popular festival and club attraction ever since. The group has performed at Artisphere, Fiesta Latina, LEAF, and LAAFF, The Grey Eagle, Bobo Gallery, Emerald Lounge, and The Pour House in Charleston, featuring Benavides’ original compositions incorporating flamenco, Afro-beat, funk, and jazz. Attracted to the artistic community of Asheville, Benavides moved to the mountains in 2001. He soon met, and was playing with, many of the area’s best musicians, and his vision of flamenco fusion was continued in the band he named Cabo Verde.
