Juan Martin

    Juan Martín 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.

    From his origins in Málaga 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.

    His early influences were Niño 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 Martín 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 José 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."

    Juan Martín was voted two years running as one of the top three flamenco guitarists in the world in  ‘Guitar Player Magazine’. 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 Tárrega, and Isaac Albeniz.

Juan Martin - Essential Flamenco Guitar - Vol 1 - Book and 2 DVDs
This first book of a projected 3 volume series by Juan Martin is designed for the complete beginner and requires no prior knowledge of the guitar or flamenco music! It also provides invaluable insight and material for more advanced players who want to capture the essential techniques, sounds, rhythms and emotional power of authentic flamenco guitar. The series begins with in-depth demonstrations of how the basic building blocks of flamenco guitar technique are used in actual flamenco music. The material then progresses to a detailed exploration of the individual rhythmic forms - the palos. In this book, the fundamental palos of Solea and Alegrias are presented to emphasize the basic rhythms and provide examples of falsetas - the melodic passages that build flamenco guitar solos. Juan then shows how to apply these when collaborating with a dancer and a singer. The two DVDs contain over 3.5 hours of explanation and demonstrations. The first DVD provides a detailed introduction to basic flamenco guitar techniques by using examples of authentic flamenco solos to show these techniques in action. The second DVD progresses to demonstrations of the Solea and Alegrias including music for the solo guitarist as well as the guitarist accompanying the dancer and singer!

Juan Martin - Essential Flamenco Guitar - Vol 2 - Book and 2 DVDs
The acclaimed first volume of this exciting series gave extensive insights into basic techniques of flamenco guitar playing and the two important rhythmic forms (palos) of Solea and Alegrias. This second volume continues on with an exploration of further essential rhythmic palos. The first of these, occupying the entire first DVD, is the Bulerias. Juan Martin brings his many years of experience as an internationally renowned flamenco soloist and accompanist for singers and dancers to unravel its mysteries, explaining and demonstrating very clearly the different elements of its rhythmic structure and the various ways it may be accented and counted. He uses traditional and more modern examples of the different kinds of rhythm and melodic passages (falsetas) to provide an invaluable understanding of this wonderful palo. The second DVD is devoted to the popular flamenco Rumba, then Tangos, Tientos and that most profound of all the palos, the deeply moving Seguiriyas. Juan's solo playing is complemented by demonstrations of the guitar's role in accompanying the flamenco dance (baile) and song (cante) with the help of outstanding dancers Raquel de Luna and Miguel Infante and singers Amparo Heredia and Carlos Brias. The two DVDs contain 3 hours of explanation and demonstrations!
