Mixed in the melting pot of marginalization with gypsies and transhumant of all laya, the last Moriscos bequeathed Andalusian musical DNA its melismas: that unmistakable way of vocalizing that, beyond musicological tests, turns the head of any Spaniard when he hears singing of the muezzin.

After walking hand in hand with several local fans, he decides to enter the demanding world of the touch for the dance, nothing more and nothing less than in the academy of Mrs. Matilde Coral, which will open the door to the great companies of dance like those of Antonio Canales, Javier Latorre or Manuela Carrasco. Later, he decides to park the toque for the dance and to focus on accompanying the cante with which he will accompany voices like those of La Macanita, El Potito, Susi, Guadiana, Montse Cortés, José Mercé or Arcángel. However, the definitive accolade will come to him when he is requested by Maestro Paco de Lucía to accompany him as... +

Accademia del Piacere

The courage of its innovative projects and the strong artistic personality of its director have made Accademia del Piacere the avant-garde group of Spanish ancient music and one of the leaders in Europe, thanks to its conception of historical music as something alive, full of emotions that their musicians internalize as their own and transmit to the spectator.
Since its beginnings in 2002 Accademia del Piacere has deepened and revealed new nuances in fundamental repertoires of historical music, such as the Italian Seicento, to which he has devoted his albums Le Lacrime di Eros (Prelude Classical Music Award 2009) and Amori di Marte, centered in the Combattimento di Tancredi and Clorinda de Monteverdi (Exceptional Album Scherzo 2011 and CD Tipp in Toccata Magazine, Germany), or the French chamber music of the court of the Sun King, recorded in Les violes du Ciel et de l’Enfer (nominated to the prize of the European critic International Classical Music Awards 2011).
