The Worthy Successor to the Throne of Jerez Bulería
In the mid-70s, the programme Rito y Geografía del Cante –broadcast on Spanish national TV– exhibited a girl of just 6 years old singing bulerías in an overwhelming way. That girl is today one of the flagships of Jerez-style singing. Her emergence in the 90s made her headlining the best national festivals. She is a singer with beautiful echoes, and she will be surrounded by a high-quality group. The Valencia family from Jerez has one of their best representatives in the guitarist Manuel Valencia. Along with this guitar, the essential Chicharito and Macano, to the beat, and the percussion of Carlos Merino. A luxury group at the service of an exceptional singer: La Macanita.
