LIMON
COMPOSER&PRODUCER
Young producer, composer and performing artist Javier Limón is already a legend of Latin American culture. Javier Limón (Madrid, 1973) graduated from the Madrid Royal Conservatory, where he studied piano and guitar. He is an active composer and producer who began composing for flamenco artists but has since expanded his reach to Latin jazz musicians and Cuban artists. His many composition and production credits include major albums by renowned artists such as Paco de Lucía, Bebo Valdes, El Cigala, Enrique Morente, Wynton Marsalis, and the acclaimed Spanish singer Concha Buika among many others.
Recording from Bogota to Paris and New York to Palestine, the artist incorporates a decidedly international vibe in his take on the traditions of Flamenco. Raised in Spain, Limon traveled to New York City at an early age to train in the arts schools of the US. It was there that he was discovered for his potent and powerful lyricism and composition.
Grammy Award winner and winner of 7 Latin Grammys among many others, Limón is already
lead reference in Spain. Employed by powerhouses of the flamenco world, such as Enrique Morente and Remedios Amaya, to work his magic, Limon’s ability to weave fairytales with his unique twists on the genre garnered him a Latin GRAMMY in 2004 for Producer of the Year. Limon has gone on to win a total of seven Latin GRAMMY’s, one GRAMMY and many more nominations. Javier Limón has combined several professional occupations in the world of art and communication. Although his core activity has been focused on composition, production and art direction on all types of projects, from albums to film scores and tv shows among others, his work as a communicator and teacher is likewise remarkable.
Currently he blends his artistic commitments with solidarity projects and with his work as a teacher and artistic director of the Mediterranean Institute at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
One of his latest album productions, “Traveller’ by Anoushka Shankar, has just been nominated to the Grammy for the Best World Music Album 2013. COLLABORATING ARTISTS

ENTRE2AGUAS
Entre2aguas is a music documentary directed by Javier Limón, one of the most renowned music
producers in Spain, in search of musical connections between two worlds: the Mediterranean cultures
and the American cultures.
Almost forty years ago the course of flamenco music changed by chance. In Peru, Paco de Lucía
discovered the cajon drum and incorporated it to his music and now the cajon drum is considered by
many a flamenco instrument. This event was the starting point for this documentary, which reflects the
ongoing encounter between two cultures: the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Also exploring the
current 'world music' in some of these countries from different points of view.
The human stories, landscapes, gastronomy or any other source of inspiration is valid to get to know
the music, and the people of a country. Participating artists in these documentary series are Avishai
Cohen, Antonio Carmona, Oscar de Leon, Guinga, Alejandro Sanz, Tito Paris or Carminho among
many others.
