Manuel Jara is a Chilean born guitarist now residing in Calgary. An accomplished player and teacher whose award winning recordings (a 2005 Juno recipient having partnered up with guitar aficionado Oscar Lopez) have received national acclaim. His guitar style is high energy Latin rhythms delivered with precision and passion. Manuel had joined forces with ‘the fly’ in 2013 to form Jara Mosca to create a unique blend of sounds ranging from rhumba to flamenco and reggae. When these two hit the stage, sparks fly.
