Four up-and-coming artists in the world of flamenco: the finely-tuned voice of Gema Caballero with echoes of Enrique Morente and the guitar of Luis Mariano, the knowledge and flamenco feeling of Falo with Flavio Rodrígues, the extraordinary depth and rich voice of Pedro el Granaíno with Juan Requena and the luminous sound of Rocío Márquez reminiscent of Pepe Marchena with the guitar of Manuel Herrera.

 

GEMA CABALLERO, Granada singer


Gema Caballero was born in Granada.  From early on she began to learn flamenco singing at the dance schools in her city, which was her first learning experience.  She has participated in various festivals and shows, sharing the bill with young Granada artists of her generation such as Estrella Morente and Marina Heredia.

El Falo, singer


Rafael Jiménez, “Falo”, gypsy singer.  Born in Oviedo in 1964.  His mother was a flamenco dancer who worked with the Príncipe Gitano, and flamenco was a natural part of the family.

His first professional engagements were at the Enrique Morente flamenco club in his hometown, until poet Félix Grande accorded him a grant to attend a course of flamencology at the University of Madrid.  From then on, he became a full-fledged flamenco singer.
