María Vizarraga y Antonio Santiago "Ñoño"
Born in the district of Las Tres Mil Viviendas in Seville, flamenco is in the blood of Mari Vizarraga. Juana la del Revuelo introduced her professionally and since then she has worked with Juana Amaya, Torombo, Joaquín Cortés, Remedios Amaya and more recently she is a must in all of Farruquito´s shows. She is truly female authority of the flamenco singing and she shines equally ripping soleá or in the most festive sounds. Her strong voice which generates full respect among flamenco fans and enthusiasts is already part of flamenco history.
At Flamenco on Fire she will be accompanied by Antonio Santiago, “Ñoño”. He is a young guitar player that keeps a traditional beat. He started his education when he was 12 in the Fundación de Cristina attending classes of artist like Miguel Angel Cortes, Manolo Franco, or Pedro Sierra among others. At 16 he did his first tour and he later started to work in the most renowned tablaos of Spain. He has accompanied a lot of artists like Pepe Torres, Juana Amaya or Farruquito Worldwide. In 2008 he was awarded the First prize as solo guitarist in the contest of the Flamencology School of Utrera.
