Jorge Miguel is a Spanish Canadian Flamenco guitarist and composer.

In 2002 the Jorge Miguel Flamenco Ensemble was formed with the mandate to take true Flamenco to audiences across Canada and beyond. The Ensemble combines the three pillars of Flamenco, the guitar, the dance and the song (el Toque, el Baile y el Canté).

Jorge's family is from Cadiz, Andalucia, Spain, his parents moved from Seville to Toronto just one year before he was born. After years of trying to ignore his Spanish roots, Jorge realized his true calling was playing Flamenco. Jorge moved back to Spain in 1995 to immerse himself in the study of Flamenco Guitar, and he has not strayed from that path since.

Jorge has studied with maestro’s Manolo Sanlucar, Cañizares, José Antonio Rodriguez in Cordoba, Gerardo Nuñez in Sanlucar, Pepe Russo in Cadiz, Don Antonio Villar in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Carlos Del Rio in Madrid, Augustin “Bola” Carbonell in Seville and attended workshops w/ Diego Del Morao and singer Rocio Marquez in Toronto. Jorge has also accompanied renowned dancers such as Esmeralda Enrique, Soledad Barrio, Isabel Bayon and Maria Serrano.
