At the age of twelve, he changed his Almeria residence to the city of Malaga and that is where his musical career began, performing in tablaos such as the Gipsy Tavern, where he not only had Paco de Lucía as a spectator, but also met Camarón de la Island.

He began participating in the main Andalusian flamenco festivals, monopolizing the attention of critics and amateurs for his extraordinary faculties.

Indicación: It is the work of the architects Aurelio del Pozo and Luis Marín. It was inaugurated in 1991. The main hall has a cylindrical shape with a capacity for 1800 spectators. It is distributed in stalls, two terraces, a balcony and paradise. In the year 2007 a reform was made that doubled the size of the stage, which went from 800 square meters to 1600. Thanks to its variable acoustics, different shows can be performed, from operas to classical concerts and recitals, including flamenco, ballet and zarzuelas. In addition to the main hall, the complex contains experimental theater rooms, exhibitions, conferences and a cultural research center. Of particular note is the Manuel García room, in which chamber operas and small format are represented. Likewise, the Teatro de la Maestranza is the headquarters of the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville (ROSS), which not only regularly participates in opera performances, but also has an intense concert season throughout the season. In the 2007 reform, an exclusive testing room was incorporated for ROSS.
