Dylan Allen began playing acoustic guitar and later studied flamenco guitar with Joaquín Gallegos and Johnny Beard. His sharp ear for rhythms enabled him to easily transition to percussion instruments like the djembe and the flamenco cajón. He has been influenced by such artists as Francisco Javier Orrosco “Yiyi” and Guillermo McGill. He furthered his knowledge of the Spanish culture through his travels to the Spanish cities of Seville and Madrid. Dylan draws from a diverse musical background and approaches flamenco with an appreciation for the traditional structure as well as for modern musical influences. He is happy to join Reflejos Flamencos as their flamenco percussionist and second guitarist.
