Flamenco Legend: TOMATITO

Direct from Spain - an evening with the world's greatest living flamenco guitarist!
Born in Andalucia into a family of flamenco guitarists, José Fernández Torres, “Tomatito was discovered as a child prodigy and mentored by the late great Paco De Lucia. For years, he was the exclusive accompanist of the legendary singer Camaron de la Isla (“it´s easy to understand that a genius like Camarón could only talk musically to a genius like Tomatito" -Miami Herald). Now, with the recent passing of both his mentor and his musical partner, Tomatito honors their legacies and stands as the leading purveyor of Spain’s most celebrated tradition.


He will be joined by the electrifying dancer, José Maya, who has collaborated with many of the most renowned flamenco artists including Farruquito, El Güito,Manolete, Estrella Morente, Gerardo Núñez and Diego El Cigala, and has opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé and Björk.
