Bio

Maria Zemantauski is one of the world’s few heralded female flamenco guitarists, and one of even fewer female flamenco composers. She has performed in Spain, Italy and across the continental United States to great acclaim. Her albums, Mrs. Laughinghouse (1997), Seeing Red (2000), Under the Lemon Tree (2005) and Petty Feet & Mistletoe (2010), have received stellar reviews from Flamenco... more

Maria Zemantauski is one of the world’s few heralded female flamenco guitarists, and one of even fewer female flamenco composers. She has performed in Spain, Italy and across the continental United States to great acclaim. Her albums, Mrs. Laughinghouse (1997), Seeing Red (2000), Under the Lemon Tree (2005) and Petty Feet & Mistletoe (2010), have received stellar reviews from Flamenco Connection, Dirty Linen and music critics around the world.

As one reviewer wrote, “Zemantauski has continually pushed the boundaries of the possible with her trusty 6-string, blending genres that have little or no business appearing on the same bill, much less in the same song. It's rarely less than electrifying to watch her do it." . Maria is one of the featured performers in the award-winning documentary, “Radical Harmonies,” an historical perspective of Women’s Music Festivals. Her music is also included in the film, “The Heretics” a feature length documentary about the Women’s Art Movement of the 70’s in the USA.

She maintains an active career as a teacher, lecturer and performer; delighting audiences as a soloist, with her global music ensemble "Alegria" and as a frequent guest artist with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic String Quartet. Maria has been the Coordinator of Cultural Affairs at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy N.Y. since 2004 and is on the Board of Directors of the Classical Guitar Society of Upstate New York.
