Omar Nicho

Learning the guitar through self-study from the age of 7, Omar Nicho started his musical education at the National Conservatory of Lima in 2008. In the next years, he was awarded two first prizes at the International Classical Guitar Competitions Ciudad de Lima (Peru) and César Cortinas (Uruguay), which allowed him to give concerts in different parts of Latin America. In 2012, weeks before he moved to Paris where he continued his studies, he received a fellowship from the Patronato Peruano de la Música, a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of the most promising young talents of the country. After working under the direction of Gabriel Bianco and Judicaël Perroy, he was accepted in 2015 at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris (CNSMDP) into Roland Dyens’ class, which has recently been relayed to Tristan Manoukian. He also attended masterclasses by Alvaro Pierri, Jesus Castro-Balbi, Zoran Dukic, David Russell, Carlo Marcchione, and others. Finally, he participated in several interdisciplinary artistic projects, related to improvisations at the theater, audiovisual production and sound design, allowing him to further develop his artistic personality.
