"I'd rather be like this"
From an artistic family, Rafael Ojeda Rojas was born in Seville in 1978. His father was Falin, a founding member of the Cantores de Híspalis group. At the age of 14 he made his debut at the Lope de Vega Theater in his city, singing for the dance of “La Chunga”. The show Danzas de España and the tributes to Gabriela Ortega are some of his first works, as well as several works in Japan. Through Jesús Quintero’s tv show he is discovered by a new audience, and in 2004 he publishes his first solo album, “Amar duele” (To Love hurts). Since then, he has not stopped performing until he has become one of the most recognized voices on the Spanish music scene, from the flamenco roots to the tear of the “copla” and contemporary emotions.
In Flamenco On Fire, Falete presents the show “Prefiero ser así” (I’d rather be like this), a collection of poems, ballads and songs in which he goes from Nino Bravo to Raphael, from Rocío Jurado to Maite Martín or Bambino. A sample of his perception of art as a way to express freedom without ties, only lead by feelings.
