Maneli Jamal is a solo acoustic guitarist, whose unique style of playing and ability to connect with his audience transcends the age, culture and generational boundaries that limit the majority of mainstream music found today. Having dedicated himself to the exploration of acoustic guitar technique, Maneli has developed his own sound. Western, Flamenco, and Persian modes combine with his own percussive technique creating a rich and unique voice on the guitar.

Born in Iran and raised in Germany, Maneli moved to the States in his adolescence, immigrating to Minnesota before relocating to Austin, Texas until his late teens. At this time, his family was issued a deportation letter by the immigration office, and they were forced to claim refuge in Canada within thirty days of receiving the notice. Taking literally only what they could fit in their hands, Maneli and his family arrived in Toronto after establishing their lives in Austin. It was at this time that Maneli got an acoustic guitar from his father, which has scarcely left his hands since.

Maneli Jamal recently received first place in the online international YouTube acoustic guitar competition for Faith Guitars. Also, he just released his new debut album featuring 14 tracks of all original compositions which is available through his website.

Yes, life is good and Alaska is pretty warm the past week - snow melting and the birds are singing. I'm wanting to catch a live show of yours when I get down south!

Prior to accepting your invite I listened to your posted recordings...wonderful. I liked the Middle Eastern/Flamenco mix. I also noted a Hedges influence. I look forward to hearing more. Please feel welcome to join my recent group for "Travel Guitar". We discuss the reality of traveling with a guitar for performing, practice, or just the novelty of having an instrument with us.
