Juan Manuel Ramírez Oliveros, hails from Celaya, Guanajuato. He began playing the guitar at the age of 13 and was always involved with music classes since elementary school. With his first steps in music he approached rock and blues. Jimmy Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-bone Walker, etc. were always part of his inspiration. With Paco de Lucía he completely converted to flamenco technique, like many other guitarists who are “converted” by listening to the maestro’s touch. Juan Manuel has played with many people from the flamenco community in Mexico and has had the opportunity to travel to places such as Cuba at the international dance festival and to the cradle of flamenco, Andalusia, where he had the opportunity to live with gypsies in a more natural and free way.
