MANZANARES is hot Spanish guitar, sizzling Latin percussion, and soulful vocals; a high-energy and fiery sound with a dazzling repertoire that ranges from Spanish and Middle Eastern guitar melodies to Flamenco to Pop to Latin Rock.
Led by brothers David and Michael Manzanares and accompanied by some of the best musicians in the industry, MANZANARES has been labeled one of the hottest latin acts to hit the music scene and has gained both national and international attention. They continue to expand their already extensive fan base all over the U.S., Europe, South America, Japan and Australia. Sharing their music with the world is what the brothers like best. Born with a passion for music, they grew up the youngest two of six children on a century-old Spanish ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico. Steeped in strong family traditions, they were raised with a deep respect for their culture, their land and their family.
The earliest memory for the brothers is music. As small children, they began their musical journey and education by capturing the essence of Northern New Mexican and Spanish music on many occasions at the family ranch. Their father and uncles played guitar while the family danced and sang the rancheras, corridos, huapangos, boleros and valses of another time. This early musical influence is a big source of their inspiration.
