Guitarist and composer Juan Martín plays and introduces his compositions within the forms of the great tradition of flamenco. His exquisite style is enhanced through minimal amplification to capture his pure flamenco sound. He has recorded 20 albums, appeared in a Spanish film at 17 and has since made three films with his dance company.
Voted into the top three flamenco guitarists in the world by Guitar Player USA, Juan Martín has toured the world playing concerts from Shanghai and Melbourne to New York as well as in the Montreux Jazz Festival. Critics have compared his compositional talent to that of Albéniz, Turina and Tárrega. He played for Picasso’s 90th birthday celebrations and his books for learning the guitar are now translated into many languages with his original book being referred to as ‘The Bible’ of flamenco guitar.
