Carlos de Jacoba, Flamenco guitarist, was born in the Granada town of Motril, into a Roma family. His father Antonio, was an aficionado of Flamenco singing, and passed his passion for Flamenco onto his family. At age 11, Carlos was given his first guitar. He studied with Master Guitarist Manuel Caraval Ramos, who helped young Carlos develop into the exceptional artist he is today. At the age of 16, Carlos de Jacoba went on a tour of The Netherlands with fellow musicians from Motril. On a quest for fresh artistic ideas, Mr.de Jacoba relocated to Madrid a few years later, where he was soon recognized for his talent. There he entered into the world of avant-garde Flamenco, working with many famous Flamenco musicians, including The Pirana, The Package, Jose Antonio Salazar and Diego El Cigala, whom he joined on tour after the release of Cigalas album Picasso en mis ojos. From then on, tablaos, penas and theaters opened their doors to Mr. de Jacoba. To date he has accompanied many of Flamencos most prominent artists, including singers El Portugues, Potito, Montse Cortes, Miguel El Rubio, Guadiana, Duquende, Estrella Morente, Rancapino, Romerito de Triana and dancers Antonio Canales, Farruquito and Jose Maya. He also collaborated with Enrique Piculabe on the album Sing and Dream. Seduced by many forms of music in his career, Carlos de Jacoba has collaborated with internationally renowned recording artists from diverse backgrounds, including jazz guitarist Larry Coryell, Cuban bassist and multi-instrumentalist Alain Perez and Latin jazz trumpeter and percussionist Jerry Gonzalez. Currently involved with many artistic projects, Mr. de Jacoba also performs with his own sextet, leading his audiences into the most personal side of his music. Roma tradition, knowledge and passion mingled together with modernity, freshness and romanticism define Carlos de Jacoba as a Flamenco guitarist for our time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJKSOHnS-nk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY-0
