ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In his first album, Juan performs a selection of his own compositions as well as interpretations of well known modern composers like Vicente Amigo and a mix of traditional sung forms or cantes.
He plays a wide range of flamenco styles such as, Buleria, Rondeña, Tientos, Granainas, Minera, Solea por buleria, Rumba, Fandango grande and Soleares.

Born in Barcelona, Juan began study in classical guitar, followed with extensive training in flamenco with renowned teachers in Barcelona, Madrid and Jerez, Spain. An award from the Canada Council for the Arts deepened his mastery of guitar and cante (singing) in Southern Spain, and inspired the recording of his first album 'Mimbre'. Juan has worked as a soloist, accompanist and arranger with numerous artists in flamenco, jazz, latin-american folklore and eastern music, performing in Spain, UK, Chile and Canada, including the prestigious Palau de la Musica in Barcelona. He is a regular performer in Vancouver’s Flamenco circles, and a soloist with his troupe, 'Mimbre Flamenco'.

Beautiful work of music and voices
We have been at a few performances of Juan de Marias and his flamenco ensemble. Mimbre is an outstanding example of Juan's talent and good taste for rumbas, bolerias and everything to do with spanish music. An album that fits in any house music library for those special moments...

lyricism and dynamics beyond the standard
This CD stands alone in the flamenco genre. The pieces on Mimbre express not only a lyricism, but also a fluidity in both dynamics and metre that are a joy to experience and not regularly heard in flamenco music. The title track offers a wonderful lyrical journey with superb phrasing, and the pieces Tajo De Ronda, Morente and Tientos de la Nina exhibit a wide dynamic and expressive range....which can only come from the heart of a true musician. This gentleman has a wonderful future ahead of him.

Great CD !!
Dear Juan,
How fortunate we are to have great flamenco musicians around here like you and your fellow musicians.
We are truly enjoying your cd, and find we can listen to it repeatedly, and that is the test of good music.

Mimbre CD put to the test of the general public
I have always enjoyed the cd personally, my favourite cuts are the Tajo de Rodena that Juan composed for his wife Rose, and the interpretation of Callejon de la Luna. My husband Richard often plays the cd in the mornings to start his day.
But the real test I think, is that we play the cd in my store, and I notice my employees choose it regularly, with hundreds of cd's on the playlists.
Customers often ask about what they hear , and buy the cd.
I also am looking forward to the next cd
