Dr Sanchez plays a mixture of traditional Mediterranean and South American songs, from artists such as Paco de Lucia, Armik, Ottmar Liebert and Santana..right thru to original tracks that lean more toward progressive beats fused with nylon string guitar..all improvised and dynamic. Dr Sanchez embraces the sounds of Latin Guitar in both the traditional and new flamenco manner.

Dr Sanchez is currently based in Christchurch, New Zealand and plays many weekly residencies and also tours extensively during Summer around NZ playing festivals. Having lost all regular venues in the aftermath of The 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, Dr Sanchez is now working in a revitalised Christchurch, playing up to 10 shows a week in the exciting new restaurants and wine bars that are emerging.
