27 Apr Alejandro Hurtado
Alejandro Hurtado, one of the greatest exponents of the new generation of guitarists today. His touch exudes strength and sensitivity, two attributes which are difficult to find in the same artist whilst at the same time Alejandro exploits them both very well. His technique is precise and clean,on seeing him play he transmits to us that pleasant sensation of playing with ease which comes from a very high level of technique that allows him to concentrate on musical expression whilst overcoming any difficulty.
Alejandro’s artistic career took on a new dimension from 2017 onwards, after many long years of preparation and a good number of previous professional successes. It was in that year,just a couple of months after finishing his Higher Level studies in the Superior Music Conservatory of Flamenco Guitar in Córdoba, where he obtained an Honours Degree and an Outstanding Award at the end of his course when he was given one of the principal awards in the world of Flamenco Guitar, “El Bordón Minero”.It was given to Alejandro after several years during which nobody had actually been awarded the prize.
In the same year,2017,he was noticed by the marvellous singer Mayte Martín and she made him her official guitarist in all of her concerts(TEMPO RUBATO, al CANTAR a MANUEL, FLAMENCO CLASICO MEMENTO and DEJA VU). This collaboration was an important turning point in Alejandro’s career, as Mayte Martín is, without doubt, one of the most important figures in the world of flamenco.
His great talent and capacity for work have led him to garner numerous awards despite his young age:
*Primer Premio “Bordón Minero” en el Festival Internacional del Cante de las Minas La Unión 2017.
