Tierra Sonikete

Tierra Sonikete, originating from New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, reflects the rhythmic beauty of New Mexico’s desert landscapes integrated with the nuanced jazz harmonies of the big city, unified by the passionate spirit of Spain’s flamenco traditions.

Tierra Sonikete focuses primarily on performing original compositions, but peppered into the group’s mix are also unique arrangements of classic flamenco-jazz tunes by pioneers of the genre like Paco de Lucia, as well as classic jazz tunes arranged with flamenco’s characteristic rhythmic flavor.


  • J.Q. Whitcomb, trumpet
  • Joaquin Gallegos, flamenco guitar

  • Justin Bransford/Asher Barreras, double bass
  • John Martin III, percussion
