After studying classical guitar he went to the origin land of flamenco,Jerez de La Frontera in Andalucia,where he was involved to the marvelous world of flamenco.His real artistic training though came through the way of experience as an accompanist of flamenco dancers and singers who geve him the artistic name “Tio Currito”.
He made his debut as a concert guitar soloist in 1983 an from that time he has given many recitals and taken part in international guitar competitions in Spain.
Gipsy techniques,the mercurial speed of his playing ,the hollow strumming of his fingernails on the strings or the guitar wood ,pure sound combined with creative imagination on his improvisation are some of the main elements that characterize his strictly personal style as a guitar interpreter and music composer.
