The Juan Martin Flamenco Trio
24 October 2019
The Great Barn at Hellens, Much Marcle, Ledbury, Herefordshire, HR8 2LY
A truly awe-inspiring guitarist, composer and musician returns with artists direct from Andalucia, Spain. This show is at the vanguard of modern flamenco and brings prize winning dancer Luisa Chichano together with the intensity and emotion of one of the world's finest guitarists. Crowning the trio is the amazing vocal of Amparo Heredia.
Versatile Arts in partnership with Hellensmusic and Mu Mu Audio host world famous Flamenco guitarist Juan Martin, who returns to the Great Barn at Hellens following a sell-out performance two years ago. The performance is a part of Hellensmusic Through the Year program which seeks to bring some of the world’s best musicians to Hellens.
Juan Martin produces sounds that are both melodic and explosive, the visceral power of authentic Flamenco. You’ll be transported to the classic Spain of Málaga, Granada, Córdoba and Jerez on a journey through the diverse cultures of Andalucia.
Juan incorporates a myriad influences from the gypsy culture of Rajesthan in Northern India, to the Byzantine chants plus the Hebraic and Moorish laments of Spain’s influence in South America - the sounds of Argentina and Cuba also evident in the rumba, guajiras and milonga.
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. He has twice been voted one of the world's top three exponents by 'Guitar Player's magazine.
