Gino & Jiri Taihuttu: A Father and son
and two guitars…
For generations the DNA of
the Taihuttu family has
been breathing music....
Likewise the DNA of
guitar sensation Gino Taihuttu (1961) who has passed on these genes to
his son Jiri (1995). Currently, Jiri is seen as the biggest prodigy of
Flamenco in the Netherlands.
Since his 10th age, Jiri has been taking
lessons at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, being part of a special class
for young talents and together with his teacher (Eric Vaarzon Morel),
Jiri appeared in Dutch television shows such as ‘De Wereld Draait
Door’ and ‘Vrije Geluiden’.
Their shared passion for Flamenco brought
father and son Taihuttu on
stage together, and since performed for over 300 times, sharing
their own compositions with audiences.
The magical synergy between father and son can only be created by blood
Once struck by their uplifting sounds, you are immediately
captivated. With a nod to Latin and Jazz in their passionate manner of
performing, they have concurred many European countries, such as The
Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Germany, Belgium and Sweden.
Gino and Jiri write most of their own repertoire. Amongst their
compositions, you will find soundtracks for short films, TV series ‘Van
God Los’ and cinema hits ‘Rabat’ and ‘Wolf’.
For the latter movie, Gino and Jiri achieved a nomination for a Golden
Calf (Dutch: Gouden Kalf), a
prestigious award of the Dutch Film Festival, in the category for best
soundtrack of the documentary "Horse of Kings, Thief of Hearts" by Gino & Jiri Taihuttu
Nowadays, the Taihuttu’s have their unique signature written over
