Manuel Valencia at IGF GUITAR SUMMIT
21 Jul 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm|
Manuel Valencia is one of the most exciting young talent in the world of the Flamenco guitar today. He follows the success of his quartet’s UK debut at Kings Place in October 2016 with a return as a soloist.
Manuel Valencia started studying guitar with his uncle, Fernando Terremoto, before being recruited by Gerardo Núñez to join his ensemble, with whom he has toured internationally. His very successful soloist debut at the 2010 Festival of Jerez paved the way for appearances at a host of prestigious festivals such as the Seville Biennial, the Festival de la Mistela, Mont de Marsan and Suma Flamenca soon making him one of the most sought after Flamenco players in the world.
In 2014 he won the Revelation Giraldillo of the Bienal de Sevilla ‘for his original contributions to traditional toque’.
