Karaván Família

Tomasito (ES)

Tomasito is originally from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.

Jerez is where the flamenco “palo” bulería is most famous. It is a popular music style among namely within the gipsy community, and often sang outside in the streets with great ease and artistry. Nowhere else will you be able to listen anything similar.

What makes Tomasito unquique is his Rap-Flamenco fusion dancing, together with his Heavy-Flamenco-Punk mix.
