Juan Martin

    Juan Martin is an outstanding flamenco guitar player and composer! He is among the very small number of flamenco guitarists to achieve international recognition as a solo concert and recording artist.

    A celebrated virtuoso of the flamenco guitar who has been voted into the top three guitarists in the world by the U.S. magazine 'Guitar Player', Juan Martin learned his art in the land of its origin, Andalucia in southern Spain where he still has a home in Malaga. He is "The leading flamenco guitarist of his generation" according to The Guardian.

    From his origins in Malaga in Andalucia (Spain), his art has evolved in the purest Spanish traditions of flamenco. He is also passionately committed to communicating the mysteries of this great tradition to others, as shown by his method books, transcription books, and DVDs.

    He has recorded 20 albums, mostly as a composer including "The Andalucian Suites" and "Serenade" with The Royal Philharmonic. "In Martin's hands flamenco is not so much a musical style as an entire culture compressed into a quivering box of air". The Guardian, UK. His appearance with his Flamenco Dance Ensemble was filmed live at the Barbican for DVD in 2010.

    His early influences were Nino Ricardo and later Paco De Lucia in Madrid. The '100 notes per second brigade' however doesn't interest him musically and he is more likely to draw inspiration from Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and Manuel De Falla. In this sense Juan Martin is a guitarist-composer of contemporary music while respecting the great flamenco tradition. 

    His guitar method "La Guitarra Flamenco" is regarded as the 'Bible of Flamenco' worldwide and within his lifetime is at least as well known as Fernando Sor's classical guitar method. It is no wonder that Jose Manuel Gamboa, the most eminent Spanish flamenco writer and critic, wrote "he has an impeccable technique and is an authentic ambassador of flamenco music throughout the entire world."

    Pyrotechnics can be produced by some players, but instinctive musicianship is a rare quality. "No flash, just loads of panache" - The Melbourne Age.  His compositional ability in presenting the traditional forms of this fascinating art has led music critics to compare him to Joaquin Turina, Francesco Tarrega, and Isaac Albeniz.

Juan then shows how to apply these when collaborating with a dancer and a singer. The online video contains over 3.5 hours of explanation and demonstrations while providing a detailed introduction to basic flamenco guitar techniques by using examples of authentic flamenco solos to show these techniques in action and eventually progresses to demonstrations of the Solea and Alegrias including music for the solo guitarist as well as the guitarist accompanying the dancer and singer!
