Alex Hristov is best known for his ability to play deeply emotional, traditional Flamenco while venturing into Latin music, Jazz, and other genres with ease. Alex’s deep musical and cultural knowledge allow him to blend the sounds and rhythms of southern Spain with Latin and contemporary grooves. Alex's original songs and cover arrangements give the impression he has been affected by everyone from puro Flamenco phenom Tomatito and rumba master Jesse Cook to Brazilian legend Luiz Bonfa, Gypsy Jazz pioneer Django Reinhardt, and progressive metal legend, Tosin Abasi.
Alex trained and studied Flamenco music, guitar, and culture with Gaetano in Arizona, and master guitarist and technician Gerardo Núñez in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the heart of Andalucía in southern Spain. Later, while at Brown University, he studied classical guitar to broaden his artistic perspective.
Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, Alex spent the first half of his life moving between the great Balkan state and Phoenix. A precocious toddler, Alex was ever captivated by the beauty and complexity of music. By 3rd grade he was taking private saxophone and piano lessons from some of Arizona’s best. As a teenager, Alex became increasingly fascinated by the Flamenco guitarist he would hear just down the hall from his saxophone lessons. Already an accomplished musician, he picked up the guitar with ease and commenced a lifelong journey of mastering Flamenco guitar.
