flamenco at the em tabRyan Feldhouse’s soulful playing is a testament to his family’s tradition of music and dance that has been passed down for generations.  From a young age Ryan was immersed in world music.  His grandfather Sulyman ‘El Coyote’, a world renowned musician, front maned in the 60’s psychedelic rock band Kaleidoscope and a popular world music group Sirocco.  His dedication to  music carried him across seas to study traditional Balkan and Turkish Rom music.  Ryan’s playing expanded even further to France and Spain through the Flamenco and Rumba style of the maestro Joef.
