Born in Leningrad in 1981, Mijail Kharash starts playing the violin at a very young age, later fascinated by the sound and possibilities of flamenco guitar, he falls in love with this instrument. As a child he is very interested in woodworking, music, art and poetry. After several jobs (as a cook, fisherman, construction worker, furniture maker), he decides to fully focus on building his own flamenco guitar creation. After two failures to achieve a high-quality guitar, he travels to Spain in search of answers, knowledge and experience. After many questions in various studios throughout the country, he has the honor and the luck to meet Carmelo Gonzalez de Ronda, who will be his first maestro and guide in the mysterious world of flamenco guitar. In 2009, he moves to the city of Granada, where he met many guitar builders, being Felix Moya Ibarra who introduced him to the Granada style of guitar building. Since then Mijail has been building traditional handmade flamenco guitars with a personal touch, influenced in recent years by amazing professionalism and experience from Jose Luis Vigil. Mijail feels proud and blessed to live in Granada, the city of great guitar builders, Alhambra and Sierra Nevada.
