juanmartinmasterclassA celebrated virtuoso of the flamenco guitar, Juan Martín has been voted one of the top three guitarists in the world by Guitar Player magazine. A native of Andalucía, he spends much time on tour and in London, where he has formed an international company, FlamencoVision, for the promotion of high quality flamenco. He has released fourteen albums, four videos and seven books. His method book, El Arte Flamenco de la Guitarra, now in its seventh printing, has opened the complex art of the flamenco guitar to the whole world and is assiduously studied from Beijing to San Francisco.

Juan Martín has performed at some of the world’s leading concert venues and at major International Arts Festivals including Edinburgh, Ludwigsburg, Montreux Jazz (solo in 1985 and with Herbie Hancock in 1987), Istanbul and Hong Kong. He has broadcast on the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Spanish RTE and German ZDF television and in the United States for CNN. His solo performance of the rumba ‘La Fería’ brought his audience at the Royal Albert Hall to its feet during BBC TV’s Joy to the World. And he has collaborated with a number of world-renowned artists, including Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. Martín was the first flamenco artist to record with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and reviews of his solo compositions, The Andalucian Suites and Luna Negra, have compared him to the great Spanish composers Tárrega and Turina.

Juan Martín came to the National Concert Hall with his group Arte Flamenco Puro, consisting of Martín (guitar), Nuria Martín (vocals) and Luisa Chicano and Salvador Moreno ‘El Tigre’ (dancers). Their sold-out performance received a ten-minute standing ovation.
