TOMATITO comes from a Gypsy family with musical traditions. He spent most of his life with his wife, children and his horses in one of the poorest districts of Almería. Where there is sincerity, art emanates from the self, and TOMATITO plays the music of His Andalusia, with real gypsy energy, with great feeling, rhythmic fury and a free spirit.
At just fifteen, he met Camarón de la Isla, the greatest cantor of all time. Together, they created a legendary duo that achieved success with the release of the album La Leyenda del Tiempo. "What I am today, I owe to him, completely to him," says Tomatito, but José Fernández Torres, because that's really his name, not only represents Camaron's influence, but has developed his own style, typical of TOMATITO - a charismatic, serious man, completely devoted to the art of flamenco, who shuns the temptations of fame and commercial excesses.
José's way of playing emphasizes the essence of each of the palos (rhythmic styles), which is the very essence of flamenco. Now you can hear the effect of two decades of musical adventures. There is also much more. TOMATITO used new guitars and new melodic structures to further develop his style. They appear in his Bulerías, Tarantas, Soleares and Rumbas.
Tomatito has been romancing jazz, Brazilian and Cuban music for years. The virtuoso brought his style to the work of artists such as Frank Sinatra, Elton John, John McLaughlin, Mecano and Larry Corryel. However, he never strayed too far from the music that flows in his veins. He received a César Award for the music to Tony Gatlif's Vengo. He also received a total of five Grammy Awards (one with Michel Camilo) and a Latin Grammy for the albums "Aguadulce" and "Soy Flamenco".
We invite you to an emotional and authentic flamenco spectacle!
