Book Joncan Kavlakoglu
Joncan Kavlakoglu plays an original whirlwind style of highly visceral, passionately-charged, percussive flamenco/funk fusion. Joncan’s style melds his appreciation for a wide range of musical styles into captivating performances on a single acoustic guitar that sounds like an entire band.
Described as ‘James Brown meets Rodrigo y Gabriela on an acoustic guitar’, his performances combine the athletic skill of percussive techniques with emotive, highly dynamic and groove-based playing. This creates a visually enthralling element alongside an atmosphere that gets people moving and pushes an audience’s expectation of what an acoustic guitar can do.
Joncan Kavlakoglu has been performing since 13 years old. Having performed internationally from Lisbon to London, Istanbul to Dublin and Lake Konstanz to Edinburgh, ranging from chic hotel bars, street festivals, large scale corporate events, rowdy European bars, and Victorian stately homes, Joncan performs to all crowds with an equal amount of passion and flare.
Joncan was featured on British TV in 2016 performing for guitar legend George Benson on Sky Arts. He performed twice on primetime BBC1 Shows The One Show and Inside Out in 2017.
Other recent performances include:
Apple store Covent Garden – 27th October 2018.
Performances at press releases and events for ultra-high end audio company Audio Lounge in Bangalore. India at the Taj West End Hotel, including interview published in a mainstream Indian publication and filmed performance broadcast on public Indian television between 5th – 9th Sep 2018.
Performance and masterclass at Yamaha’s flagship EU store, Yamaha Music London off of Oxford Street on 27 Sep 2018.

‘Hi Joncan, just a quick email before we jet off to say a big thank you for being part of our wedding yesterday. You were professional, friendly, so easy to deal with and, most importantly, your music was fantastic!!! Our guests absolutely loved every single minute and we cried tears of joy when you played ‘true colours’! It meant a lot to have you there and we’re keeping your details for the next time we have a party.’

‘…very special thanks to Joncan who amazed all the audience with his immense talent. Bravo! I wish you a huge success!’
Dominique Mafrand, Nagra Audio Engineer
‘I have been either a visitor or participant in high-end audio shows for over 25 years. This weekend’s exhibition was, by a far measure, the best exhibit that I have ever been involved in. I am absolutely certain that every attendee who visited the event will not soon forget what they had a chance to experience.’
Event Attendee and Audio Professional
‘Thank you for putting your heart and soul into each and every performance. You are a brilliant artist. The world needs to know you and your beautiful music. Please consider yourself a member of our “family”.’
‘Finally, much respect to Joncan for his particularly accomplished playing and ability to repeat such an energetic performance so many times over the course of two days. I think George owes you the beers instead. If I manage to see you in TV on my side of the planet, I’ll buy you one, too.’
