José Fernández Torres, known as Tomatito, is a soloist of major significance, within the realm of Flamenco guitar. His unique approach, both to traditional and festive forms, highlights an unparalleled musical sensitivity and interpretative power. Tomatito’s charismatic personality and unrelenting commitment to the continuity of Flamenco’s development, have brought him worldwide recognition in the musical field and in film, theatre and art. He has collaborated with a multitude of performers worldwide, influencing and encouraging a generation of young artists. Winner of four Grammy awards, since signing to Decca/Universal in 2000, Tomatito’s success has helped him become the mature, elegant guitarist he is today. His 2013 release, Soy Flamenco, earned a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Flamenco Album in 2013.

“One of Spain’s greatest guitarists… a flamenco virtuoso.” –Miami Herald

“Tomatito is the most eminent guitarist in flamenco. [He plays] with such clean intent that it was possible for you to feel the energy and gesture and contrast in those individual notes and phrases as if you were playing them yourself.” –The New York Times
