Since beginning his musical career at the age of ten, he has worked with such renowned artists as dancers Antonio Canales, Joaquín Cortés and Farruquito, guitarists Paco de Lucia Vicente Amigo, and singers Miguel Poveda, Diego el Cigala, and Estrella Morente. A noted flamenco composer, his commissions include Gallo de Pelea for the New Spanish Ballet.
This program features his own compositions and will include selections from his acclaimed 2020 Latin Grammy-winning Flamenco sin Fronteras (Flamenco without Borders) as well as new works. He will be accompanied by two guitarists, Javier Hinojosa and Pedro Cortes, and percussionist Jose Moreno.
