About Carmen:

Carmen began her artistic career when she was only four years old, winning the prize of Galas Juveniles and being a disciple of Enrique El Cojo. In 1970 she made her professional debut in her hometown, and the following year she toured South America for six months.
After this, she began her participation in Andalusian festivals and the flamenco’s most prominent tablaos, alternating them with different artistic tours through out Europe, America and Asia, often together with Curro Vélez, in the Fiesta Gitana group.

As an artist of wide repertoire, she is considered one of the most significant interpreters of today. She has collaborated with the indisputable talents of the flamenco world such as Camarón de la Isla, Pansequito del Puerto and El Lebrijano, among others.
