John W. Warren, composer and Latin American classical guitarist, has performed extensively in the United States and Latin America. He performs the music of Brazil, Cuba, Latin America, and Spain; his own compositions; and arrangements of popular songs.

His album "Serenata de la Sirena" features original compositions and pieces by Latin American composers. Warren has presented concerts, radio performances, and performed at private and corporate events throughout the United States, and in Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, and Spain.

Warren performs solo at more intimate house concerts, and with sensational Brazilian percussionist Bruno Lucini at larger Groupmuse gatherings.

Traditional Repertoire

My repertoire includes a large, revolving set of works by Latin American composers, such as:
Drume Negrita - Eliseo Grenet
Serenata de Adeus, Consolação, and others – Baden Powell
Trémolo – Eduardo Falu
Manha do Carnaval – Luis Bonfá
Danza del Altiplano — Leo Brouwer
Prelude #1– Heitor Villa-Lobos
Julia Florida – Agustín Barrios Mangoré
Sons da Carilhōes - João Pernambuco
Gymnopédie No. 1 – Erik Satie

I perform some original compositions and arrangements of popular music, such as Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood." I also mix it up with some classic songs on my vintage electric guitar, such as Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk" (1959), "Albatross" (1968) by Fleetwood Mac, and the "Adagio" from Joaquin Rodrigo's "Adagio" from the popular Concierto de Aranjuez.

New repertoire for 2020 include "Floresta de las Amazonas/Melodia Sentimental" by Heitor Villa-Lobos, American folk song "Shenandoah," Peter Gabriel's "Here Comes the Flood," and others.
