This is me. Founder & CEO of Totalísimo, Expert in Shows, Talents, Events, Marketing & Travels. I never sleep … or almost.
I was born on September 17, 1974 in the most beautiful city in the world: Granada, in southern Spain.
Since childhood my great passion has always been music and luckily I had the opportunity to combine it by studying Piano with studies in Marketing, Business Administration and English. Parallel to this, my artistic career began to emerge as a musician of different groups and artists accompanying them to the piano: Arkanos, María Porcel, La Hoyanca, Dakoki, Indigo, Giving Cante, among others. Perhaps this was the very beginning!
When I was 20 years old I decided to create, parallel to my work in a family business, an online store: ‘Flamenkito.Com’, aimed at selling flamenco items and music instruments. A client once asked me for a flamenco show for his event and without any hesitation I gave him the contact of a friend who was dedicated to it, but the second time that they asked me for the same service, without thinking it twice I said: ‘I am the contact’ … and that was the moment where the company I run today was born: ‘ TOTALISIMO ‘.
TOTALISIMO has become after a constant evolution in these 25 years of life in an International Agency of Artists and Talents Booking, Integral Organization of Events, Management Agency, Marketing Agency, Advertising Campaigns with Influencers and Travel Agency.
TOTALISIMO has worked in more than 60 countries with numerous international artists. The list of artists and projects produced throughout my professional career is very extensive and would occupy rivers of ink, but I do want to mention some of the artists who have made me happiest in my work or with whom in many cases I have a beautiful personal friendship relationship such as: Pastora Soler, Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, Steve Aoki, Maluma, Eros Ramazzotti, Daddy Yankee, Rafael Amargo, José Carreras, Montserrat Caballé (QEPD), Juan Magán, Dando El Cante, Joaquín Cortés, María Porcel, Ana Torroja, Virginia Tola, Rosa López, Rosario Flores, Lolita, Raphael, Kika Quesada, Marta Sánchez, Gipsy Kings, André Reyes, Diego el Cigala, Agustín Barajas, Javier Martos, Curro Candela, Montserrat Martí, María Toledo, Enrique Morente (QEPD), Pepe Habichuela, Josemi Carmona, Willy Chirino and many more!
