This guitarist grew up amid the great flamenco guitarists, among who were his father and grandfather, both called Tomate, and his uncle Nino Miguel. Tomatito (literally little tomato) was a sensation from an early age. Alongside accompanying singers and dancers, Tomatito also played solo pieces by Paco de Lucía. It was in those days that he accompanied many great names, like Pansequito, Lebrijano and Paco de Lucía himself.

Camerón de la Isla asked him for accompaniment at a festival in 1973. This was the beginning of an 18-year collaboration, lasting until the death of Camarón in 1992. La Leyenda des Tiempo was one of the hits they shared.

In addition to his making a mix of traditional flamenco and jazz, he was also experimenting with Afro-Cuban and Brasilian styles, which clearly shows on his album Barrio Negro.

Those with the chance to hear Tomatito don’t ever forget it. He brings flamenco music in its purest form, with streaks of jazz, latino and rock. A concert with a good dose of stormy flamenco dance.

Tomatito was originally planned to perform in the main hall on Thursday 12th March 2020. Due to the measures taken to stop the corona virus, this concert has been rescheduled to Sunday 25th October 2020. All ticket holders have been notified personally and given further information.
