For me, music has been the way to communicate with the public and show my deepest feelings. I reflect it in my themes and Havana songs where I speak openly about blindness and the experiences that have marked my existence.
In a Tower of a wealthy family in the neighborhood of Sarrià in the city of Barcelona, a tree with different characteristics is born. That tree, after suffering a lot of abuse, it ends up killed and transformed into a guitar. From then on, it is the life of this guitar that passes through different hands, a guitar that will sound different from the others. So much so, that any of you would want to have it in your hands.
Guitar soloist and Professor of Classical Guitar and Chamber Music
Head of the Guitar Department
Martí Batalla is a passionate and sincere musician. The guitar is his voice. He transforms moments of his daily life and intimate experiences into charming compositions that move you, surprise you – in one aspect or another – and never leave you indifferent. His music is the living portrait of his personality and all of it breathes authenticity.
I like to remember it: Martí was one of my first students – that was many years ago – and it is nice to see how his innate talent and his vocation have never stopped working their way with effort, enthusiasm and, above all … with good humour. Congratulations, old friend!
