– Bruce Pilato (Gannett News Service)


“…melodic, passionate, intricate original compositions.” – Riley Tharp (Acoustic Guitar)


“ Miguel Espinoza [is] one of the best flamenco guitarists in the United States. The director was a huge fan of his, and since we needed to feature a flamenco guitarist throughout the score, we flew him in from Denver. Miguel is a freak show. He could do things on the guitar that my brain couldn’t comprehend. I would watch his fingers erupt effortlessly across the strings, but it never seemed to match the sounds I was hearing. Every time he touched a string, I was in awe. He’s a flamenco virtuoso and an absolute pleasure to collaborate with.” – Brian Satterwhite (Composer for the IMAX film Ride Around the World)


“Acoustic guitar, electric bass, tablas, percussion. Curandero, the debut CD by flamenco guitarist Miguel Espinoza in collaboration with tabla player Ty Burhoe, is nothing short of spectacular, successfully fusing fiery, passionate Spanish rhythms with the exotic voicings of the Indian tabla.”

– Indie Acoustic (The 50 Best CDs from 1990-2000: CD Reviews)



“Displaying a genius for musical form, Curandero’s ‘La Tormenta’ crosses Latin Jazz with flamenco and elements of Braziliian and salsa, accenting the storm of music with clever integrations of the Indian tabla.” 

– Dave Chamberlain (Chicago Reader)


“Espinoza is a gifted guitarist who takes the fiery appeal of Flamenco to new heights.”

– Matthew Moon (Crossroads)


“Brilliant and amazing is just a start to describe the latest released album “Aras,” by the highly talented artists Miguel Espinoza and Ty Burhoe, aka Curandero.” –


“A remarkable balance between individual skill, ensemble understanding and overall excitement.”  – Jeff Kaliss (Music Wire)


“Filled with a musical passion and innovative vitality, this duo comes together to take ancient art forms, whose paths intertwined centuries ago, into the present. Curandero means healer or folk doctor and their music is alive with this spirit.” (Backroads Music)


“…the flamenco tradition of Spain and the classical percussion of India mesh in a haunting, moving display of passionate virtuosity.” (Victory)


“Espinoza and Burhoe can really make sparks fly; notes explode like hornets in a tornado.”

– CW (NAPRA Review)


“Should cure everyone from any disease or sickness, either in the body, soul or spirit…Joyous, inventive, perfectly crafted music. Deserves to climb the hit parade to Himalayan heights.”
