He recorded historic albums with Niño Ricardo and Melchor de Marchena and sang in Córdoba in 1962 the night that Antonio Mairena was handed the Third Gold Key of Song. He is the brother- in-law of the dancer Farruco, for whom he has sung on numerous occasions Standing out for his 'soleá´ and 'seguiriya´ and performs unlike anyone Manuel Torres' 'tarantos´.
