Myrddin, flamenco guitar
This guitar genius upgrades the traditional flamenco style with virtuosity and elements of jazz and classical music.
In the scope of the recent changes in the flamenco scene, Myrddin is quite an excentric genius. He grew up in a family of artists and musicians, in a lively house with an unhealthy amount of instruments available. Art wasn’t luxury or entertainment, it was the beating heart, the norm. At the tender age of eleven his father tought him how to play the clarinet in jazz and gipsyswingstyle, became part of the familyorchestra and had his first experiences on stage. A classical melody composed on the guitar made him ask his father to teach him the basics of flamencoguitar.
Quite soon after that Myrddin seemed ready for the real work and went to Andalucia to learn from Manolo Sanlucar and Gerardo Núñez. It stimulated him to compose in his own unique language rooted deeply in the pure flamencotradition but enriched by an unlimited creativity. He fully masters the ‘compas’ of the flamenco, which gives him the freedom to converse with elements of jazz or classical music.
