Fernando Perez was born in Ejea de los Caballeros, a town in the north of Spain. He has dedicated his life to explore the world's music and cultures via his guitar. His life has been an odyssey. He has lived years in different cultures, from Hawaii,Greece, Spain, China, Egypt, Sudan, Turkey, India and America.

Fernando's first contact with classical music was through the conservatory of Spain. But his interest took him to study more directly from artists and their cultures, traveling to different places to not only learn but to experience the spirit of the different musical styles. He has performed with artists from such exotic places as Hawaii, Cuba, Jamaica, West Africa, Japan, South, Central and North America, Spain, France, Ireland, India and Egypt.

The guitar has always been his passion, an instrument which he explores in its many forms: Spaniish classical guitar, acoustic, electric, Dobros or resophonic guitars as well as African, Hawaiian ki Ho'alu (Slack Key) and Kika Kila (Steel Guitar), the delta blues 'slide' style from Mississippi, Flamenco and the unique way of playing guitar in Hindustani music found in India or even the fretless Arabic guitar. He also explores new horizons refl ected throughout his arrangements and compositions based on instruments of different cultures such as the Japanese Koto, Chinese Pipa, African Ngoni and the Kora. Fernando's compositions are an exciting and evocative journey around the globe.
