From the legendary Los Farruco dynasty, the first family of Gypsy flamenco dance, Farruquito, or Juan Manuel Fernandez Montoya, is regarded as one of the most faithful representatives of flamenco puro. Son of the singer El Moreno and dancer La Farruca, he is the chief proponent of the unique dance style founded by his grandfather, the famed El Farruco.
At just 15 years old, Farruquito created his first show, Raíces Flamencas (Flamenco Roots). Since his debut at the Royal Festival Hall in London, he has performed with great success around the world. Following a performance at Flamenco Festival USA, The New York Times considered him “the best artist to set foot in the Big Apple in 2001.” He has also received numerous honors, including the prestigious APDE 2004 Award to the “worthy depositary of the Gypsy dance heritage.”
