José Fernández Torres ‘Tomatito’, is one of the great flamenco guitar players nowadays.  He is an example of mastery, wisdom, virtuosity and sensitivity.  For 15 years, he was part of one of the couples that best worked together and best renowned in the history of the flamenco genre, together with Camarón de la Isla.

His style of playing is characterized by his strong hand and his rythm tensión, even in the free styles and because his “falsetas” are always built with a meaning. He has a particular, undisputable stamp and through his flamenco style he claims his place as maestro of the “jondo” art.
