Classical Guitar Magazine:
“On Friday, May 18, at 12:30 p.m., Marija Temo will mesmerize the crowd with her singing, dancing, and extraordinary flamenco guitar-playing. I saw her perform at the GFA convention in Fullerton, California, last June and was blown away by her passion and skill.”

Greene Space Events:
“Also on the Greene Space stage, Marija Temo will play a guitar that she specifically co-designed to play in both the classical and flamenco styles.  She also sings and dances in the flamenco tradition, so don’t be surprised if something other than guitar pyrotechnics happens.” http://www.thegreenespace.org/events/thegreenespace/2018/may/17/flamenco-tribute-pepe-romero-and-marija-temo/?sf87778441=1

NY Guitar Festival:
Triple threat Marija Temo does it all: she sings, dances, and fiercely plays flamenco guitar. Praised for her formidable chops, Temo plays a guitar specifically tailored to the nuances of both classical and flamenco; she co-designed this unique instrument with luthier Tom Rodriguez. Although immersed in flamenco tradition, Temo also plays pop crossover and solos with symphonies. Composer Loris Ohannes Chobanian wrote the Concierto del Fuego especially as a showcase for Temo’s individual synthesis of classical rigor and Spanish style. She performed in Fuego Ibérico, a flamenco musical inspired by cabaret. Currently, she serves as Guitar Chair at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. Temo received a Master’s degree from the Peabody Conservatory, where she studied with Manuel Barrueco. Her solo recital at this year’s NYGF marks her first appearance at the Festival since “Audible Cloisters” in 2016.
