‹ Back to What's On Music: Juan Martin and Ensemble

11 Oct 2012

Musica Alhambra

Celebrated virtuoso of the Flamenco guitar, Juan Martìn has been voted one of the top three guitarists in the world by US magazine Guitar Player. His latest project explores the roots of flamenco through Moorish and Indian gypsy music, Sephardic song and his own inimitable flamenco style. 

He is joined by his ensemble, blending flamenco guitar with oud, tabla and clarinet, in what The Guardian describes as ‘virtuoso playing, for sure, but with a difference. Intensity and emotion were there... but Juan Martìn’s skill was in creating unexpected textures and colours within the flamenco setting.

‘Juan Martín literally wrote the book on Spanish guitar styles: his El Arte Flamenco de la Guitarra is a worldwide bestseller…In Martín's hands, flamenco is not so much a musical style as an entire culture compressed into a quivering box of air’
The Guardian
