Samuel Rouesnel « Samuelito » (1993) started classical guitar at seven at the Conservatoire de Caen (Normandy). He was soon fascinated by world music and particularly flamenco that he discovered through the singing and guitar. Samuelito followed a dual classical and flamenco guitar path, which led him to meet many great performers (Paco de Lucía, Tomatito, Vicente Amigo, Ramón Sanchez, Roland Dyens, Gérard Abiton, Arnaud Dumond, Ibrahim Maalouf and many others) and made him a very eclectic musician. His first concert took place on the day of his 16th birthday at the Caen Theater, broadcasted by France Télévisions. It was the beginning of an international career (France, Spain, Germany, Croatia, United States…).
Deeply attached to the flamenco tradition, both as an interpreter and composer, this young guitarist already plays a very personal music. His artistic talents have been sought for other kinds of projects such as film musics, album collaborations, master classes, magazine tutorials.
