Juan Jose Manzano


Juan Jose Manzano is a Spanish Flamenco Guitarist and Composer. He has been living in Ireland since 2005 and during this time, he has performed at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland, St. Patrick's Festival Ireland, the Instituto Cervantes Dublín, Smock Alley Theatre and the Draiocht Blanchardstown Theatre to name a few.

Juan Jose was greatly influenced by his mother singing Flamenco at home and also at the Peña Flamenca, a building next door to his home where Flamenco was performed daily and which he could hear day and night.

He has been surrounded by
Flamenco since he was born , and so inevitably Flamenco became the passion of his life.

When he was 18, he started his professional career and performed on stage all over Cadiz and Andalusia as a soloist and accompanying Flamenco singers while performing in most of the major Flamenco Festivals all over the South of Spain.

Today, Juan Jose’s passion is the showcase, integration and cross-cultural evolution of Traditional Flamenco music in Ireland.
