I understand that a wedding is about ''celebrating love''. I deeply enjoy contributing to such a special day with my music. I offer an exclusive atmosphere as a soloist and in a duo with a violin.

Full Description
  • As a soloist, I can play a selection of my compositions: a very melodic guitar sound based on traditional Spanish flamenco styles. It has the passion of the instrument and of the Spanish tradition, it is my unique sound, and it is ideal to create a romantic, passionate atmosphere. Alternatively, I can also offer a very traditional flamenco recital, which of course will provide this passionate atmosphere as well, only with a stronger, more ardent sound. A second option is my duo with a classcial violin. We have a selection of our own-composition. The combination of a melodic, flamenco guitar with the romantic echo of the violin creates a truly exclusive atmosphere. I understand the needs of the couple and can easily adapt my performance to any specific requirements.

Ask a question
What is your most memorable wedding?
It was in London less than 1 year ago: I was hired to play for just 60 minutes and I finally played for 3 hours! The guests were enjoying it, the atmosphere was so special. And the reason we finished was that the venue had to close. Live guitar music is not just a backgroud sound, it joins people together, it offers everyone an experience and emotions...
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Passionate, expressive, emotional, melodic, virtuoso,
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I love doing it. It is my passion: I love composing and performing music, it is my gift. I love people enjoyining it.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the day. Do not forget we are there to celebrate love, your love. Above all this ''organizing the perfect day'', please do not to forget it is your day, so enjoy it. Celebrate it.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
When I have been asked to create a tune for the couple. It has happened many times, and they use it later for many things: videos, etc. It is just for them. A piece of mjusic I compose after talking to them and listening to them and learing something from them. Inspired by them, their love, their experiences, a unique piece of music is the result.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I asked them what they expect from me, first from an artistic point of view. We then decide any specific moments they want me to play: sometimes it is during the ceremony itself, sometimes it is while the guests are entering, sometimes after they kiss, sometimes just the cocktail or banquet afterwards, sometimes while someone reads or says something, sometimes all the time! And then I need to know all the technical specifications. I normally go one day before the ceremony to see the venue and arrange everything with the venue manager or wedding planner: I do not want surprises on that day.
What makes a romantic first dance?
A special moment occurs when the tune has a deep, special meaning for the couple.
What is your number one floor-filler?
My music is mostly to listen. But sometimes people have danced as well. Normally it is rumba.
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
Either an orchestra conducted by Beethoven himself, or a duo with a flamenco guitarist like Paco de Lucía, Manolo Sanlúcar or Serranito.
What is the soundtrack to your life?
The music I compose. Although I love flamenco and classical music, and I love traditional/folk music from many countries, I love jazz, and I have played with other flamenco and with classical, jazz and ethnic musicians, because music is my life, my music is my life. I have found my sound and my personality in music: that is my success.
