I would like to seize the opportunity this means give me to
be grateful to those people who, by different reasons, have
contributed to enrich my experience within the flamenco world.
First of all, everyone who has helped me to get over my shyness
due to my great respect to "cante" (flamenco singing);
to those who encouraged me to dedicate myself totally to flamenco
as I have done for many years.
Secondly, I wish to express my gratitude to those people and
institutions that work and dedicate all their effort and time
for flamenco music to be known all over the world what make
it to be more accesible to public.
I would also like to show my admiration and gratitude to the
Cristina Heeren Foundation for its effort and means to help
flamenco music to be spread along the world and to be learnt
by many people. This foundation gave me the opportunity to
share my life and to learn with artists who, otherwise, I
would not have known: The master José el de la Tomasa,
who really helped me from the beginning and who tell me "freedom
is always worth", even in "cante"; those who
were unique, Naranjito de Triana and Manolito Soler, who are
not with us anymore and who left fond memories in me.
I cannot forget Miguel Angel Cortés who has given me
so much. I want to thank you for your friendship, your honesty
your talent......Thank you Master!
Finally, I would like to express my more sincere gratitude
to my colleagues for their art,their friendship; with them
I started and I continue learning, trying to grow as an artist.
To all of them , to you who are reading me and specially to
our "Art", thank you for giving me so many things...
