“After having worked with the best guitarists of my time,
starting with Niño Ricardo, and including the brilliant Paco de
I can attest to the enormous talent of Alejandro Hurtado,
and I have no doubt he will occupy a privileged place
in the world of flamenco guitar.”
After many years of preparation and a many profesional
achievements, the profesional career of Alejandro reached a new level
This year, only two months after finishing his flamenco guitar
degree at the Conservatorio Superior de Córdoba, with Honor and
Extraordinary end of studies prize, he won the most important award in
the world of Flamenco guitar: the “Bordon minero”.
This prize was given to Alejandro after not having been awarded for
The same year the flamenco singer Mayte Martín, one of the l
figures in the flamenco world, took notice, and invited him to be her
official guitar player in all her performances (TEMPO RUBATO,
alCANTARaMANUEL y FLAMENCO CLÁSICO).
All this recognition is not by chance, but the fruit of an
exceptional talent and rigorous work for may years. Since the first
time he started to play guitar, at the age of 9, he showed a special
talent that surprises everybody because of the speed of his technical
and musical evolution.
He started to win prices only a few years after he began to
play guitar. He began to study classical guitar with Marco Uceda;
afterwards he was accepted at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música y
Danza “Vicente Lillo Cánovas”, in his home town, where he continued his
classical guitar studies with Raul Juan Ruiz.
At the same time, he studied flamenco guitar with Pedro
Alarcón, and modern harmony with Roberto Sabater. He continued with
David Cerreduela, and then with the legendary guitarist Arturo
Cerreduela “el nani”, who taught him the secrets of “caño roto” guitar.
Undoubtedly, his classical training has provided his style with a clean
performance unusual among the flamenco guitarists.
Over the years, his interest in flamenco grew, until he finally
focused on flamenco guitar. After finishing his studies at the
Conservatorio Profesional, he was accepted in 2013 at the Superior
Conservatory of Music in Cordoba, to study flamenco guitar with Paco
Serrano and Manolo Franco, among other teachers.
He also received classical guitar lessons from Pablo Barón.

studies prize. While studying at the Conservatorio, he has taken

Antonio Rodríguez, El Viejín, Juan Manuel Cañizares, Rafael Riqueni,
