EL RUBIO started playing the guitar at the age of seven. Since the age of eleven he dedicated himself to flamenco music, winning his first prize at a contest in Hamburg at 16.

One year later, the press celebrated him as a prince who fell from heaven to enchant mankind.

In his long standing career EL RUBIO composed a soundtrack for a movie, and had many solo appearances and concerts with various Flamenco groups in renowned halls such as „Alte Oper Frankfurt“ and the famous Gasteig in Munich. Television and radio appearances followed.
