I was born on September 17, 1974 in one of the most beautiful cities in the world such as Granada, located in the south of Spain, in Andalusia, in the same city where such important people as Federico García Lorca, Carlos Cano, Miguel Ríos or Manuel de Falla were born.
Since I was a child my passion has always been music and luckily, I had the opportunity to combine studying Piano with my studies in Marketing, Business Administration and English. While studying, my artistic career began as a pianist accompanied by different bands and local artists. Maybe this was the beginning of everything.
When I was 20 years old, I decided to create, in parallel with my work in a family business, an online shop: ‘Flamenkito.Com’ aimed at selling flamenco instruments and articles. A client once asked me for a flamenco show for his event and without thinking about it I gave him the contact of a friend who was dedicated to it, but the second time they asked me for the same service, without hesitation I told him: ‘I am the contact’ and that was 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 Hiring of Artists and Talents, Agency of Management, Integral Organization of Events, Agency of Marketing, Advertising, Campaigns, Travel Agency and Real Estate Agency.
TOTALISIMO has worked in more than 70 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 happier in my work or with whom in many cases I maintain a nice personal relationship of friendship such as: Pastora Soler, Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, Rafael Amargo, José Carreras, Montserrat Caballé (QEPD), Juan Magán, Dando El Cante, Joaquín Cortés, María Porcel, Ana Torroja, Virginia Tola, Rosa López, Rosario Flores, 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!
