What: Flamenco, Classical
Where: Waterloo, ON
The incredibly fluent playing of Juneyt is even more remarkable when you take into consideration that the guitarist is self-taught. Despite having been a relative late-bloomer to music – he only picked up the guitar at age 18 – the musician, born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, has seen plenty of success.
Over the course of his career, Juneyt has contributed to more than 15 studio records and scored film and television projects. While fellow Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook and flamenco giant Paco de Lucia are the obvious touchpoints for anybody keeping score, Juneyt has indeed crafted a sound that is all his own.
