Musical Director, Guitarist/Composer
Caroline Planté began her musical studies in Montréal at a very young age. Her father, the guitarist 'El Rubio', transmitted his knowledge and love of music to her. Awarded many bursaries both by Canada Council for the Arts and Arts and Letters Council of Quebec, she perfected her skills in Spain with several master guitarists, singers and dancers. With over 27 years of experience as a composer and guitarist, she participated in the composition and interpretation of several important productions in Canada, USA and Spain, where she was also musical director and composer of Cruceta Flamenco (Madrid) from 2005 to 2013. The first female flamenco guitarist to ever compose and record a cd, 8 reflexiones, was launched in 2010 and enjoyed great international success.
Caroline has been the co-director and artistic director of the Montreal Flamenco Festival since it was founded in 2012. She has just completed her second album, CYCLES, which will be available soon.
