A celebrated virtuoso of the Flamenco guitar who
A celebrated virtuoso of the Flamenco guitar who has been voted into the top three guitarists in the world (US magazine ‘Guitar Player’), Juan Martín is a native of Andalucía, Spain, where he still has a home in the city of Málaga.
He has recorded 18 albums, mostly as a composer and has several DVDs distributed by Warner Brothers and Mel Bay.
Juan Martin’s original method book ‘El Arte Flamenco de la Guitarra’ is in its eighth print and has opened the complex art of the Flamenco guitar to the whole world and is assiduously studied from Moscow to Beijing to San Francisco and back to Spain. It is now considered to be the ‘bible’ of Flamenco guitar method.
Martin performs with a highly distinctive compositional style formed from his early years in Málaga and developed through wide experience in Madrid, including direct contact with Paco de Lucía, also a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer, and record producer. Further experience came through recordings with the Royal Philharmonic and performances with many iconic artists including Miles Davis.
Juan Martin “has a terrifyingly good technique and an absolute dominance of the guitar, filling the concert hall with crystalline clarity.” – Spanish paper ‘El Mundo’
His alchemy of the traditional and modern, mixed with his seductive, fiery and passionate performances guarantee an evening of excitement and electricity.
