Hello we talk with the great musician Andrés Martínez, first of all thank you for receiving us and for granting us this interview, Currently we can find Andrés in the discotheque of reference in Marbella and Puerto Banus, Joys live, where along with seven other musicians you can find live music every day from 21:30.
What led you to become a musician?
Well, I think I had no other choice hahaha, I come from a family of musicians and above all passionate about music, so I grew up in that environment and I am delighted to have grown up like that.
Tell us about your musical training and vocation?
I went to a local academy in my town in Uruguay and there I started studying on those old double keyboard organs with a bass pedal on the left leg and a volume pedal on the right leg. I remember how hard it was for me to coordinate all that.
Then as a teenager I went to private classical piano teachers and I got more into the world of live music, etc.
Who inspired you to make music?
I don't really know, my father is a musician and before that he was a Dj. We had records and music at home all day and I liked everything. I still like many different styles and when it comes to performing, I have a quite varied repertoire.
What instruments do you play and which one is your favorite?
I play piano and saxophone. The piano is the instrument I have played all my life and with the saxophone I started late, when I was a teenager. Then I stopped playing it and I took it up again a few years ago and I must say that I got so caught up in it that it became my favorite instrument.
How would you define your style?
I'm a fan of the 80's. So I'm really into that style and also Latin music. But to sum it up, current songs and songs from all my life.
Do you feel identified with any singer?
Well, many, Phil Collins is my favorite and in Latin music the master Juan Luis Guerra.
