Kiki Morente

José Enrique Morente Carbonell, Kiki Morente (Granada,1989) is part of a family line that includes great guitar players and singers.  He is the son of Enrique Morente and the dancer Aurora Carbonell, and his siblings are Soleá and Estrella.  His father instilled in him the love for the guitar since he was a child and he even took higher education level classes at the Conservatory of young players of Granada.  Many times, he accompanies himself with this instrument when he signs.  His way of singing is very influenced by maestros like Manuel Vallejo, Pepe Marchena or Antonio Chacón, but it also incorporates contemporary influences from Pat Metheny, Leonard Cohen or Cheb Khaled, who worked with him in several of his father´s projects.  In his solo career he has worked with Juan Habichuela grandson or David Carmona, and has partnered with Vicente Amigo, Niño Josele or the movie director Carlos Saura.  In 2017 he released his first album, Albayzín, with guest performers like de Juan Habichuela, Pepe Habichuela, Rafael Riqueni, Diego del Morao, Josemi Carmona and Juan Carmona “Camborio”, among others, as guest performers.
