Tony Silva Guitar
Tony Silva has been playing acoustic guitar for over 40 years. Early influences range from Stephen Stills to Andrés Segovia. His father Pedro Silva was from Chile, and passed on the love of the music of the Andes Mountains to Tony.
As a solo performer, Silva specializes in Rumba Flamenca (the style of the Gipsy Kings). He also plays a wide range of music from Latin America, and transcribes flute and harp music from the Andes for guitar. His repertoire includes rumbas, waltzes, boleros, and huapangos with songs from Spain, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Chile and lots of Gipsy Kings!
Silva is a featured solo musician and creates a romantic atmosphere with his Spanish guitar. He is known for his steady presence at holiday fiestas and folklórico performances in Easthampton and Northampton. He was the house musician at La Casita Azteca for 9 years and at ConVino for 4 years. Silva’s mentors include Pepe Gaytán from Austin, Texas (Flamencura), and Alvaro Sánchez Olvera, a friend and collaborator in Rumba Flamenca.
Tony Silva is available for weddings, parties, corporate functions or anyplace that needs a festive atmosphere.
