San Pancho Festival of Music with Tatewari and Lobo and Esaú! Christie Seeley

From Oakland, California to Puerto Vallarta…lured by music of guitars and sounds of the sea.


oming up next week is a great annual event that, I understand, got its start in the private home of music aficionados years ago in the town of San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta, and grew to the wonderful festival that it is today after 19 years. At this joyful celebration local and imported musicians as well as organizers donate their time to provide entertainment to the multitude of people who gather at the Plaza del Sol in San Pancho every year to celebrate the tradition of music in the area. The list of entertainers is not published until the beginning of the festivities on the festival’s website but I know my good friends of Tatewari will be playing their fiery flamenco music on the final day, Sunday, February 24 at 8:45 followed by Lobo (Wolfgang Fink) and Esaú Galván playing masterful free flowing improvised flamenco guitar. The music begins daily on the 22, 23 and 24th of February at 5:00PM and lasts until 11:00PM. Some chairs are provided but

organizers recommend you bring your own if you want to be guaranteed a seat. There will be food and refreshment stands (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and also CDs and other offerings for sale. The event is free to all comers so don’t miss out! San Pancho is a lovely place to visit. There is lots of good music on the horizon for March. Lobo and Esaú will return to Incanto for an encore of their Sold Out January show on March 2. Their first show was extremely popular so now is the time to make plans for this one as tickets will go fast. It will be held in Incanto’s beautiful cabaret theater located at Insurgentes 109, next to the bridge crossing the River Cuale in Puerto Vallarta. The show will begin at 7:00PM and you can purchase tickets at or at the box office. If you don’t know already, Lobo an already celebrated flamenco guitarist from Bavaria and Esaú met many years ago when Esaú, just a boy at the time, sought his advice on some tricky guitar issues and Lobo helped him

out really jump starting Esau’s career encouraging him to study flamenco guitar. He is now a considerable guitarist and the two remain good friends, performing beautifully together to the delight of their audiences. This will be a spectacular opportunity to hear these two maestros charm with their innovative and often surprising music. The two will then go on to perform in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle on March 3. (Tree House Bar, Coral 66, 7:00 PM). The group Tatewari formed twelve years ago by Esaú and his childhood friends from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Dani Márquez (bass) and Alberto Ramirez (guitar) and completed later on with the addition of Canadian Sonny Davis on Cajón, will have the last of their very popular series of concerts in La Cruz for the season on March 11 at 7:00. Word has it that they will also have some marvelous concerts at Incanto in early April so stay tuned from more on that. Tatewari will also be featured at a dinner/show at Babel Bar on the evening of March 9. For more details on these events, see my website:
