Juani de la Isla (Juan Franciso Gonzalez Caballero) is a highly respected flamenco guitarist, from the island of San Fernando near the port city of Cádiz in southern Spain. He began his musical education studying with the great flamenco singer Rafael Romero and has been a student of the celebrated flamenco guitarist Manolo Sanlúcar. Juani de la Isla has also been trained in the gypsy flamenco style of “Morón” – a small pueblo in the heart of Andalucía’s flamenco country. 

 

During his career, he has toured internationally accompanying some of the finest flamenco artists of this century: singers Jose Mercé, Chato de la Isla, Juan Villar, Rancapino, Pansequito and Aguilar de Vejer; and dancers Javier Barón, Sara Baras and Manuela Carrasco. He has composed music for the flamenco dance company of Cristina Hoyos and for over a decade has been the musical director for the popular flamenco singer “El Barrio.” Juani de la Isla’s recording career includes participation on more than 100 albums with some of Spain’s finest flamenco artists. In 2015, he released his first solo CD “Libertad En Mis Manos.”

 

Recently he toured the United States with the flamenco dance ensemble “La Chispa & Company.” In 2018, he was a featured performer for the summer season of “Tablao Verano de Casa Flamenca”– a series of cabaret style flamenco performances at the well-known flamenco club in Albuquerque, as part of “Flamenco Sin Fronteras,” an artistic exchange project between the cities of Cadiz and Albuquerque.

 

He is the founder and director of the musical group “The Juani de la Isla Quartet” featuring performers from Spain and Latin America.
