16 Nov JOSÉ DEL TOMATE: “A mi padre”, Bulerias in Solera Flamenca
Despite his short age, this young artist has been gifted with a superb technique and a completely unusual sense of rhythm, all of which proves he took after his father and mentor: Tomatito, who managed to pass on the necessary values and knowledge to his son, allowing him to break through the same path Tomatito himself took, just like some other flamenco geniuses, such as Paco de Lucia or Camarón de la Isla did so they could go down in history.
José Fernández, also known as “José del Tomate” was born in Almeria in a family of artists. His father, Tomatito, and his great-grandfather, Miguel Fernández Cortés “El Tomate”, have been part of his artistic inspiration. He recognizes Sabicas and Paco de Lucia as influential artists on his music, but not as important as his uncle, “el Niño Miguel”.
Definitely, José Fernández is meant to become one of the greatest flamenco guitarists of this new generation, and Solera Flamenca publicly wishes the very best for his career.
Without further ado, we will be leaving you with this fragment of the buleria called “A mi padre” (To my father), a beautiful tune dedicated to his father, included in his new album, accompanied by Cristóbal Santiago with the guitar, and the clapping of Kiki Cortiñas and Pescaíto.
