El Javi

El Javi

Denver-based flamenco guitarist Javier Gutierrez, “El Javi,” was scheduled to perform a benefit concert at Thunder River Theatre Company for KDNK's birthday this weekend. He, like countless other musicians across the world, has been forced to adapt around the circumstances spurred by COVID-19. In additional to now sharing guitar playing tutorials on YouTube, Javier performs live on Facebook every Monday at 6pm. Click here to hear how Javier experienced the onset of closures and gig cancellations from a festival in Mexico.

El Javi has found a home away from home in the Roaring Fork Valley. Here he speaks about his art before his appearance at KDNK's Hoot.

Originally from Mexico, El Javi is now a resident of Colorado, and he finally made it up to the mountains, despite bald tires, to play a few gigs in the valley and to appear on Flow Diggity with DJ Rickdiculous on KDNK. He played solo flamenco guitar and chatted about his art and his life. We heard several songs from his five CDs, and he played four songs live: Trip, Olivia, California and Recuerdo a Paco.
