Born in Mexico, now Denver based flamenco guitarist El Javi combines the sounds of his acoustic flamenco guitar with the minimalist drumset of percussionist Jordi Marin, building a bridge of his own between flamenco and progressive rock. Flamenco Fusion.
Currently the instrumental duo tour while promoting their EP, A Gypsy Journey:Pt1 Trip, recorded live in the studio.
The 2012 release of Self-Portrait in L.A., launched El Javi onto an independent tour throughout the US west coast, Colorado, New York, Germany, Holland and Mexico City.
The duo has played the Festival of the Arts in Coahuila Mexico (2013), The Jazz and Blues festival in Santa Clarita, CA (2014) the International Music Festival in San Jose del Cabo, Mex (2014). and opened for todays biggest voice of flamenco, Diego el Cigala, during his Noche Tacumana world tour in San Miguel de Allende, Mex (2013).
The best representation of El Javi lives in his live performances and capturing that essence in the studio acts as a key element in the recent release of A Gypsy Journey.
While traveling, El Javi and Jordi Marin use their gypsy lifestyle to shape their music either by collaborating with other artists or simply sharing their raw intimate sound as a duo.
