Spanish: Synergy Duo – Spanish Vocal & Guitarist | UK
Synergy are a vibrant guitar and voical duo from southern Spain. They bring the passion and drama of Flamenco to their mixture of Latin based songs and instrumentals. Their music combines original material influenced by their stay in the UK with traditional material from Spain and South America.
Synergy’s singing (in both English and Spanish) is beautiful, and they produce the most natural and close of harmonies. Their guitar playing is fiery and complex, it features awesome traditional Flamenco pieces and exotic driving accompaniment. The highly rhythmical style employed moves from irresistible Rumbas and Tangos to complex Andalusian tempos.
Juan Casals Mendoza hails from Grenada where he has taken lessons from the some of the very greatest Flamenco tutors. He is not only a wonderful guitarist but is also a accomplished vocalist and composer.
Glenn Phillips was raised in Alicante but shares routes with the UK. He is the lead singer. His songs are composed in both Spanish and English, he has a fantastic voice that is both powerful but sweet. Glenn also plays the Cajon (a Peruvian percussion instrument) which brings a more energized dynamic to Synergy’s music.
Their live show is presented with upbeat humour and anecdotal song introductions. Juan and Glenn’s energy is contagious and they are always accommodating and accessible with their audiences.
”We all absolutely loved having you come to Oundle School. You interacted so well with the kids immediately picking up on the energy levels and interests of the groups that varied widely according to their ages and the sizes of the group. We really loved the interaction and the way you involved the pupils. You have inspired them all.”
