Cristian Puig

Flamenco & Spanish Dance Program Guitarist/Singer

Cristian Puig’s Flamenco career stems from his heritage passed on from his parents Pablo (guitarist) and Gloria (singer). He started playing guitar at age 20 and never looked back. In 1989 Puig formed the flamenco-jazz group “Rabat” and led the group in performances throughout South America.

Puig came to New York in 2000 from Argentina with a guitar and a dream. He has since played all tablaos in NY and many nationwide. Notable accomplishments: Original compositions for the film The Late Quartet (2012), Tahlia Theater (2002-2012), Entre Cuerdas, with Al Dimeola, Inflam, and Inside/Out. Notable performances: Kimmel Center with Peter Nero and The Philly Pops, The Bahamas International film festival, and the White House with actor/singer Terrance Howard. Puig’s flamenco/indu music project Inflame is working on a new CD.
