    From being named “Guitarist of the Year”, to winning six “Best Album” awards, to four top-ten Billboard charting albums, to top-ten radio airplay, Johannes Linstead has become recognized internationally as one of the best selling guitarists and composers in the Instrumental and World Music genres. Johannes is an “Influential Artist” with Yamaha Corporation of America, the largest musical instrument manufacturer in the world. On stage and on his recordings, Johannes lets loose a fiesta of Spanish guitar magic! Johannes’ live performances are nothing short of phenomenal. Bursting with tropical sounds, audiences are moved to dance and clap along to his music. In concert, as on his recordings, Johannes and his group create a festive mood with plenty of lightning fast guitar improvisations and spicy percussion solos alive with the driving beats of bongos, congas, timbale and doumbek. Lively Latin and Mediterranean rhythms combined with Johannes’ technical virtuosity leave audiences breathless.

Q: Your music is rich in sound from different regions. Where do you find inspiration for the various tunes when composing your music?
A: There are inspirations and there are influences. My style is influenced primarily by Caribbean, Latin American, Mediterranean, and Flamenco music, as well as western Classical, Middle Eastern, and even Native American and traditional music from India. Inspiration, on the other hand, comes from something more deep and internal - the things that move one's soul. Such inspiration for me arises from my spiritual path which affects not only my music but who I am as a human being. There is so much beauty in the world, so much love, so many cultures, so much to be in awe of, so much to be in gratitude of...Hence, I never seem to have any difficulty creating more music, words, thoughts, or art to reflect the wonder of this Divine Earth.
