Juan y Rafael Galan
Juan Galán Rodriguez (Málaga, 1876- d. Buenos Aires,
Argentina 19??)

Juan Galán Rodriguez was born in Malaga in 1876. He
was the son of the distinguished luthier, Juan Galán
Caro, also a native of Malaga, who had in turn learned
his art from Antonio Lorca, the father. Working with
his father, Juan became a master guitar maker. In 1906,
he decided to move to Buenos Aires, and beginning in
1908 he began building guitars in Argentina. In
Argentina, he became a grand figure in the guitar
world, and all the great artists of his day were drawn
to his workshop

Rafael Galán Rodriguez (b. Málaga 1888- d. Buenos
Aires, Argentina ??)

    Rafael Galán Rodriguez was born in Málaga. Like
his brother Juan was trained by his father. In 1908, he
moved to Buenos Aires and remained active there for
some decades.
