Name: Jose Luis Lemus

From: Guatemala

Style: Fingerstyle/Flamenco/Spanish Guitar


The critically acclaimed guitarist Jose Luis Lemus comes from Guatemala in Central America.


He originally studied music at the Municipal Music School in Guatemala City and also had private lessons and masterclasses with a variety of respected Central American guitarists, but after turning professional he dedicated himself to creating fingerstyle arrangements of popular songs, mainly performing English and Spanish repertoire.


His arrangements encompass a number of styles, including boleros, ballads, rock and flamenco, and he is also widely known for his own compositions.

Performances across Europe have helped him break into the continental music scene – and he has also successfully competed in international competitions, qualifying for the final of the Warsaw Fingerstyle Competition. His concert at Hellys 2022 marks his UK debut, and is a performance that no one should admit to having missed!
