Name:Pedro Ricardo Miño Bastos
Birth: 1979 Sevilla

Son of dancer Pepa Montes and guitarist Ricardo Miño. He made his stage debut at the age of four. His training and formation took place in the family and at Seville’s conservatory of music. In 1990 he participated in the show "Criaturas" at the Bienal de Sevilla. In ’94 he gave a concert with his own material but has never stopped participating in his parents’ shows, with which he tours numerous cities throughout the world. He also performs live and solo. 
This first album as a soloist is a very personal aproximation to piano flamenco and instrumental music with a wide vision of his own traditions that lets other harmonies and melodies influence a music he has been playing since he was a child.
The first record by this young artist, who is incredibly mature and has a great personality as a pianist and composer. However, this record is more than just a youthful work. The artist, who is the son of the bailaora (female flamenco dancer) Pepa Montes and the guitarist Ricardo Miño, has studied and examined each of his compositions to draw us closer to the flamenco piano and to instrumental music. The album features eleven themes that will draw 'olés' from everyone. From the knowledgeable and demanding public, as well as from listeners who, without knowing much about flamenco, cannot avoid becoming emotional when they hear him, and become infected by the rhythm and simple melodies that characterise his themes, which are both flamenco and universal.
They're two types of music with two different inclinations, with two different ways of feeling. Maybe I understand flamenco better because I'm from Andalusia, from Seville and from Triana, know what I mean? And here the sunshine is something else, and you spend all day eating tapas, and I think they're factors you need to feel flamenco, just as to feel classical music you have to go to Austria, to Germany, to feel the cold.
