José Mercé

Flamenco cantador José Mercé (given birth to José Soto Soto) began performing at age six, learning to be a soloist in his community chapel, La Basílica de la Merced in Jerez, while improving his organic skills by taking part in Antonio Gades’ theatre company. It had been through the early ’70s that Mercé relocated to Madrid to become listed on a new era of flamenco performers, such as for example Camarón (given birth to José Monge Cruz), also called Un Camarón de la Isla; Tomatito (given birth to Manuel Moreno Junquera); and talented guitarist Paco de Lucía. He performed with Gades before mid-’80s, touring halfway around the world along the way, and later on released a string of albums that presented today’s, commercially effective interpretation from the flamenco tradition.
