Born in Atlanta, GA during the mid 60’s, Austin Hubert a.k.a. Agustin el Moro, was always fascinated by guitar and other musical instruments but didn’t have the means to study until he moved to San Diego, California in 1989. He bought a guitar, and traveled and lived in Mexico and Spain where he began his endeavors as a Flamenco guitarist.

After returning to San Diego, he studied under local guitarist Paco Sevilla, John “Juan Moro” Moore and took workshops and lessons with Flamenco and Jazz guitarists traveling in and around the area.

Agustín has played professionally in local Restaurants such as Cost Brava, The Turquoise, Ole Madrid (no longer in existence), 98 Bottles and various coffee shops in the San Diego area.

In 1994 he began accompanying Flamenco classes at Juanita Franco’s dance studio, Academia de Baile Espanol: http://www.oleflamenco.net/main.html?src=%2F, and did so for 20 years, and currently accompanies other dance classes, such as Flamenco Basics, with Maestra Marisol Apostol: https://www.facebook.com/flamencobasics, La Essencia Flamenco, with Maestra Patricia Casey: https://www.facebook.com/DanzArtsSD/, experimenting with a variety of styles and musical genres.
