Juan Martin | Hellens Manor.
Juan Martín, returns to the Great Barn, Hellens on Thursday 15th March following his sell out performance two years ago. Juan is performing sounds that are both Melodic and explosive; you will be transported to the Classic Spain of Málaga, Granada, Córdoba and Jerez on a journey through the diverse cultures of Andalucia.
A native of Andalucia, Juan Martin has recorded 20 albums mostly as a composer and has played with the Royal Philharmonic and greats like Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, Juan has twice been voted one of the world’s top three exponents by ‘Guitar Player’ magazine, and extraordinarily, actually performed for Picasso on his 90th birthday.
Melodic Beauty and Rhythmic Passion. ‘The Master Flamenco Guitarist, Juan Martín’ (The Guardian) presents live, solo flamenco guitar, enhanced with minimal amplification to capture the essence of his style. This is Flamenco music with a difference: just Juan and his sublime guitar to lift you and transport you to another dimension. ¡Viva el arte!
Juan Martin is recording a new album, 45 years after his debut release. The latest offering will feature a range of his stunning new compositions, and will include live recordings at churches and chapels across Spain and the UK.
