ANTONIO SERRANO Antonio developed an amazing technique on the chromatic harmonica that has allowed him to play in many different contexts, dominating all styles of music, from classical music to jazz, blues, tango and flamenco. While Antonio in the beginning mostly played classic music, as a young adult he spent more time performing with blues, jazz and pop artists. By performing with Paco de Lucía, the greatest flamenco guitarist of Spain, Antonio became famous for introducing the harmonica in flamenco music, an almost impenetrable genre for musicians outside the flamenco culture. During his career, Antonio has played with many well-known artists and symphonic orchestras from all over the world and recorded many records with the most Spanish rock and pop artists in addition to 7 own records.
