Guitarist/composer Juan Martín has absorbed his art in the land of its origin, Andalucia and later Madrid, and introduces his compositions within the forms of the great tradition of flamenco. His distinctive sound has been honed through a lifetime of concerts and recordings, and performing with the likes of Rafael Romero and Eva la Yerbabuena.

He has recorded 20 albums, published 17 books and was invited to appear in a Spanish film Donde tu Estés when only 17 years old. He has since made three films/dvds with his flamenco dance company.

Voted into the top three flamenco guitarists in the world by Guitar Player USA, Juan Martín has toured the world playing concerts from Shanghai and Melbourne, to New York as well as in the Montreux Jazz Festival. Critics have compared his compositional talent to that of Albéniz, Turina and Tárrega.  He played for Picasso’s 90th birthday celebrations and his books and films for learning the guitar are now translated into many languages with his original book El Arte Flamenco de la Guitarra being referred to as ‘The Bible’ of flamenco guitar.
