El Javi (flamenco)
"I’ve been booking El Javi for several years at my wine bar in Valencia, CA (Wine 661). He and the recent addition of Jordi on percussion is just amazingly talented and engaging. They perform all of the Spanish Style classics that you’d expect but they also do some really fun, current and classic rock songs done Flamenco style. Thanks so much!!"
Tanya Green - owner of Wine 661, Valencia CA
"It’s just the coolest thing ever! It’s so unique and fun and my customers not only go out of their way to see him perform here but they’ve also hired him for private functions at their homes. He and Jordi are special musicians with incredible talent. I can’t book them often enough!"
Sandra Avery - Co-owner of Bravery Brewing, Lancaster CA
"On behalf of the Bravery Brewing team, we are always in for a magical evening when El Javi performs. Our patrons can look forward to a powerful magical performance like no other. We frequently get requests for future performance dates and always look forward to El Javi’s next performance with us. If you want to reward your guests, I recommend El Javi. You will not be disappointed."
Los Angeles 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 SelfPortrait 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 today’s 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.
