Born in Seville, El Oruco has performed in international flamenco festivals in Europe and the United States with renowned flamenco artists such as Israel Galván, Rocío Molina, Rosario ¨La Tremendita¨, Esperanza Fernández, Pastora Galván, Argentina, Concha Jareño and José Ángel Carmona, among others.

In the words of world renowned dancer Rocio Molina – “As a dancer I define his image as that of a wild boar, I like him because he has that aggressiveness, that school, he has a strangeness of sweetness that is something that I find rare. He has a delicacy and sweetness in contrast to his image and his physique, which takes you away, it surprises you … He is very complete, El Oruco has it all.”
