“Continente 27” has been produced together with his brother, the flamenco guitarist Luis Víctor Pérez.  Together they have created this musical universe in which we will find instruments such as synthesizers, string quartet, electric guitar or soul and flamenco voices accompanying the main character, the piano.

Emotions and places are transformed into melodies in an album that will take us through the streets of Seville with its "Callejón del Agua" , visit Madrid and its monuments with the "Taranta de Sabatini" or we will travel to Jaén taking a "Walk through the Alameda” . In short, an album full of colours, sounds and of course piano, Chico Pérez's piano.

In 2018 he was awarded, among others, with the Best Artist Award by the RTVE Institute , Young Talent Award , 1st Composer Award and was chosen for the AIEnRuta Flamencos tour.
