Juan Carmona, born in Lyon, was only ten years old when his father gave him his first guitar. His passion for the instrument grew and his virtuosity was quickly noted by professional musicians. Juan is a self-taught musician, having composed his Sinfonia Flamenca and Orillas, which have been performed by orchestras around the world. Praised by the leading figures of flamenco, Juan Carmona wanders on the air ways of the duende. At the intersection of musical modernity and the oldest flamenco traditions of Andalusia, Juan is an innovator, one of the most valiant links of his generation. His albums AlchemyaOrillasSinfonia Flamenca and El Sentido del Aire were nominated for Best Album Flamenco of the year at the Latin Grammy Awards. He has also been given UNESCO’s Grand Prize Zyriab of Virtuosos.
