Ramon Ruiz guitar Ramon Ruiz London Born in Granada, Spain, Ramon Ruiz is UK's leading Flamenco Guitarist. What gives him credit as a flamenco guitarist is his training in ‘Los Gallos’ ranked as the best and most authentic flamenco club in Seville. Five years performing daily with top flamenco artists from Seville gave him all the necessary foundations in dance and song accompaniment to take up a professional career in the flamenco scene. In 1997 Ramon permanently relocated to England where he furthered his career and musical collaborations with musicians from different genres. He took an particular interest in Indian music leading him to collaborate as a performer and composer with Sujata Banerjee’s Dance Company. He performed in London's most prominent theatres including the Royal Albert Hall and the Purcell Room. In 2009 he was offered his first recording contract by Naim Audio producing the CD, Flamenco Havana, a blend of flamenco and Cuban music featuring Jose Amador, Segundo Falcon and “El Extremeño”. His interest in classical Spanish composers such as Manuel de Falla and Isaac Albéniz lead him to obtain a LTCL diploma in classical guitar at the Trinity College, London and to collaborate with the virtuoso violin player Sebastian See-Schierenberg on recordings and concerts. In addition to his musical career Ramon obtained a BA (Honours) in Music Education in the London MET and is currently a registered flamenco guitar tutor at Kingston University, London.
