Farruquito

Farruquito is a dancer, choreographer and producer of flamenco. Within his great career, he has created a dance form that preserves the purity of flamenco. Born in Sevilla, he is the son of singer Juan Fernández Flores “El Moreno” and dancer Rosario Montoya Manzano “La Farruca.” Heir to a school founded by his grandfather “Farruco,” he debuted on the international scene at age five on Broadway with the show Flamenco Puro, sharing the bill with his family and the most legendary figures of flamenco. At age eight, he had his first season in a venue in Madrid. The following year he participated in the presentation of the Paralympic Games and the 1992 Expo in Seville. At eleven he was already collaborating with Camarón, and the following year he participated in the film Flamenco by Carlos Saura, along with his grandfather “Farruco.” That same year he participated in the artistic direction of the Bodas de Gloria with his family. At the age of fifteen he created his first show, “Raíces Flamencas”, achieving great success. At the age of 19 he was already triumphing in the United States, initiating an international career. For Farruquito, flamenco is a way of understanding life. Of his numerous works, awards, and festival apperances, highlights include: The Academy of Music awarded him for lyrics in “Dulce Canela” from the album María by Niña Pastori and for the sound of his feet in the tribute album to “Jeros”. In 2003, he premiered with great success the show Alma Vieja at the Teatro de la Maestranza in Sevilla. In 2016, he performed a recital in the Plaza de la Catedral de Almería with the guitar of Niño Josele and the voice of Arcángel. In August 2020, he released Íntimo, within the edition of Flamenco On Fire. With the participation of Remedios Amaya he combined the roots of flamenco with a more contemporary musical framework, and born from his reflections as an artist after more than thirty years on stage.
