YERAI CORTÉS & JUAN MATEO & DIEGO AMAYA: Bulerías in Solera Flamenca

This week on Solera Flamenca we bring you Yerai Cortés´s flamenco guitar. He is a really young guitarist with a dazzling sense of rhythm and creativity. He has also become an outstanding artist with a bright future. A status which is well-deserved, indeed.

For this recording, Yerai Cortés is accompanied with clapping and “jaleos” (cheering) of Diego Amaya (son of Chicuelo, the guitarist) and Juan Mateo, a great artist and a true genius of the rhythm, he has worked with several fantastic performers, such as Chicuelo or Juan Ramón Caro, among many others.

Yerai Cortés was born on 24 May 1995 in Alicante. His passion for flamenco was inherited from his family. Specifically from his father, Miguel, who taught him how to play the guitar, and also from his mother, Maria, who instilled her passion for music in him. He currently lives in Madrid, where his career would start in the best flamenco tablaos in town, like Las Carboneras, Villa Rosa, Casa Patas, or Corral de la Moreria, among others. He also worked in theatres, such as Teatro de Bellas Artes (Madrid), Teatro Coliseum (Barcelona), Teatro Lope de Vega (Sevilla), and some others.

Along his career he has accompanied several great artists: La negra, La Tana, Richard Bona, Marcos Flores, Alfonso Losa, Manuel Liñan, Bautista sisters, Chuchito Valdés, Javier Colina, or Farruquito, among others. He also writes and performs songs, such as «La Zapatera» by Juan Debel & Yerai Cortes, part of the show «FlamenKlorica» by Vanesa Coloma. He is indeed a lover of good music and creativity.

In today´s production we offer you a wonderful jaleos merging beautiful tunes and a vertiginous sense of rhythm, accompanied with clapping and “jaleos” (cheering) of Diego Amaya and Juan Mateo.
