About Jaime Zenamon

Bolivian guitarist and composer Jaime Mirtenbaum Zenamon studied guitar and composition in Israel, Europe, and South America, where he was—among other things—a student of Abel Carlevaro. Extended concert tours took him to South America, Europe, the Near East, and the United States. He also composed a number of works for guitar and for other instruments and combinations, chamber ensemble, and orchestra. Evidence of his double existence is mirrored in his compositions. In particular, his works bear the trace of his experience with the unconventional rhythms and harmonies in contemporary guitar music. His works are influenced as well by the tradition of South American folk music. This unusual combination lends his work a special and unmistakable effect. He was a teacher at the Berlin Academy of Music (HdK) from 1980 to 1992. Since then he has been a free-lance composer and concert guitarist in his own recording, composition and concert studio in Curitiba, Brazil.
