Bio - Benise

Rarely is an artist capable of touching the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures, and diverse musical backgrounds as Benise. He is, without a doubt, a phenomenon whose passionate music appeals to people from all walks of life.

His fiery Spanish Guitar melodies and high-energy rhythms weave a stunning tapestry of emotions from deep within. Benise's artistry and incomparable guitar technique is both wild and refined, producing a sound that is as edgy and exotic as it is romantic and sensual.

Roni has always charted his own distinctive path. Since the age of eleven (when he received his first guitar) he practiced relentlessly, completely self-taught, mastering a variety of different styles that were eventually to become his own unique sound. Although unable to read a note, he began composing original works with powerfully emotional arrangements. And so began his American success story.

Leaving his family and friends to move 1500 hundred miles away from home to Los Angeles with nothing more than his guitar, he held in his heart the encouragement from his parents to “work hard and have Faith!”

After being turned down by almost every club in Los Angeles, Benise started performing on the streets. It was not uncommon for Benise (performing over 200 shows a year) to have 2-3 events on any given day. Tourists from around the world and native Angelinos alike took to Roni like the “Pied Piper” of Spanish Guitar. From there, the path of his music took on a life of its own, effortlessly opening doors along the way to attract musicians, dancers and cirque performers, eventually creating an extended family that is now known as his namesake, “Benise.”

Benise redefined the ordinary and started to promote his own concerts and “sell out” 2,000 seat theaters throughout Southern California. More than just a concert '" a Benise show is an inspiring experience that celebrates “Love, Music, and Life!”

There is no other show like a Benise concert. A virtuoso guitarist, composer and producer, his expressive Spanish guitar arrangements stem from influences around the world, carrying the listener on a musical journey to destinations such as Spain, Africa, Brazil, the Mediterranean, Cuba, France, and Egypt. His audiences are held willingly captive as exotic drums, Gypsy violin, Flamenco dancers, Cirque performers, Brazilian Samba dancers, Brazilian Samba percussionists, African tribal drummers, Havana horns, and brilliant theatrical lighting work together to create an unforgettable experience.

Building on his legacy of excellence, Benise has produced and arranged all six of his albums and one DVD on his independent record label, Rosanegra Music. Benise’s unique and innovative cd packaging and marketing has set a new standard for his peers to try to emulate.

Benise continues to cross new musical boundaries - touching the hearts and souls of people from all cultures with the universal language of music.

Live the Romance... Feel the Passion!

I use this CD, tracks 2 or 5, when I have people write a fantasy travelogue in my creativity workshops. The journey is almost always to someplace Mediterranean and sunny, the music is full of life... juicy and spicy and warm. Highly enjoyable!
