“One of Spain’s greatest guitarists.”—Miami Herald
Multiple Latin Grammy winner and world-renowned flamenco guitarist Tomatito is considered the finest guitarist of his generation. He was born into a musical family and discovered at an early age by the famed guitarist Paco de Lucía, who assisted the launch of his professional career, including work with legendary flamenco vocalist Camarón de la Isla. A celebrated gypsy flamenco guitarist, Tomatito thrillingly blends traditional flamenco and jazz in his music. He has produced six solo albums and has shared stages with performers including Elton John and Chick Corea. A charismatic personality and a relentless commitment to the continuity of flamenco’s development have brought him worldwide recognition not only in the musical field but also in film, theater, and art. He has collaborated with a multitude of performers from all over the globe and has encouraged and influenced a whole generation of young upcoming artists.
