This guitarist is based in the South of England and performs at concerts, weddings and events across the UK.
Born in Camargue, southern France, this guitarist comes from a wild, gypsy cultural tradition. His distinguished name is legendary amongst the gypsies for a combination of musical talent and a marked creativity for songwriting.
Original, passionate and explosive with the mixture of hot rhythms and exotic gypsy 'duende', he continues to enrich the flamenco rumba, originally created by the Reyes family and Manitas De Plata.
The 2009 concert in Camino & London, apart from its artistic prestige, marked an important new landmark in his career; the extraordinary response from the public and international press, that magical evening, paved the way for him to appear later in famous European squares and theatres.
In October, 2000 he performed to an audience of 6000 people in The City Hall of London, by invitation from the Mayor. As he explains, "We have presented gipsy pop music in a more modern way, re-evaluating and enhancing it with warm Latin Mediterranean rhythms, and keeping it with lots of feelings at the same time, closely linked to our roots. Our music never loses that atmosphere of festivity and cheerfulness whose main purpose is to make people dance and have fun"
He is one of the most exciting new contributions to the genre.
