In 1964, he won the championship at the Competition of Mairena del Alcor, one of the most important Flamenco music festivals. Within years, he was regarded indeed as one of the greatest voices of flamenco. A few years later, in 1970, he started his collaboration with famous guitarist Paco de Lucía. His most recent musical works include Andalusi influences, with albums such as Casablanca, Open Doors and Encuentros.

And a tribute to his friend Gabriel García Márquez. In 1997 the Spanish Ministry of Culture awarded him the Medalla de Oro al Trabajo (Gold medal working labour). Peña died at his home in Seville, Spain on July 13, 2016, aged 75. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
