Marcin Patrzalek is the winner of TWO major Talent Shows – the biggest Polish TV talent show “Must be The Music” (2015) and the Italian TV Got Talent called: “Tu Si Que Vales” (2018) His music background began with classical guitar, which he started playing at the age of 10. He won many prestigious classical international competitions including the Joaquin Rodrigo Festival, winning over much older contestants. In the meantime, he became interested in flamenco music, studying it under the guidance of Spanish virtuoso Carlos Pinana. Shortly afterwards he discovered yet another style – Acoustic Fingerstyle After several years of practicing Marcin worked out a unique technique and style which ended up in developing his own approach to Percussive Fingerstyle. It extensively utilises percussive elements on the guitar body, sophisticated techniques and polyrhythms. The style Marcin plays is a result of combining classical, flamenco and acoustic fingerstyle techniques into one guitar – as well as influences from popular, metal, electronic and jazz music.
