Press / Reviews

"Zemantauski Beguiles..." The guitar strumming of the great Maria Zemantauski was a revelation.  This flamenco guitarist shared her gift, openly, honestly and purely. And the love affair she clearly has with her guitar eclipsed anything else on that stage. Zemantauski held her audience in a trance...manipulating her music into sounding like an ensemble of guitars and drums.  (Wendy Liberatore, To The Pointe)

A musician with breath-taking technique-and not at the expense of soul. She holds her formidable technical skill in check with her emotional, passionate performances. Each song conveys a small story without one word. Her love of her guitar and music was only surpassed by her obvious love of the audience. (David Malachowski, guitarist/writer)

This is the kind of playing that never gets old — beautifully balanced yet powerfully driven. (Phillip de Fremery, Guitarist)

Maria Zemantauski is a musical genius, whose performances leave her audiences asking for more. She plays with such passion and beauty, sharing cultural interpretations that make the music come alive for her audience. Building on traditional motifs and creating new and original works, Maria offers the best of both worlds. Her performance was magical, and the audience loved her! (Linda Pershing, California State University, San Marcos)
