Juan Martín – Flamenco Guitar (9pm)

Flamenco legend returns to Hellens –

Versatile Arts, Mu Mu Audio and Hellensmusic Through The Year host world famous Flamenco guitarist Juan Martín, who returns to the Great Barn at Hellens on Thursday 5th Nov following a series of sell out performances.

Juan Martín 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 of influences from the gypsy culture of Rajesthan in Northern India, to the Byzantine chants plus the Hebraic and Moorish laments of Spain’s colonisation of South America – the sounds of Argentina and Cuba also evident in the rumba, guajiras and milonga.
A native of Andalucia, Juan Martín has recorded 20 albums mostly as a composer and has played with the Royal Philharmonic and greats such as 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.
‘A giant of the flamenco guitar tradition’  The Times

Due to Covid 19 Juan will now perform twice on the same evening. The first concert will be between 7.00pm and 8.00pm with the second concert being performed between 9.00pm and 10pm. Each concert will be limited to 50 tickets and the venue will be set up to comply with social distancing requirements. There will be no bar and no interval. This is to avoid unnecessary contact. There will be staff on hand in the evening to guide you to and from your seats to ensure you have confidence and can safely enjoy the concert. Please allow time to be seated on arrival.
