Lole Y Manuel


Dolores Montoya Rodriguez ("Lole," born in Sevilla, 1954) and Manuel Molina Jimenez ("Manuel," born in Ceuta, 1948) are a flamenco duo that started, as a project, in 1972. The couple was the first flamenco couple ever to target an audience not familiar with flamenco, and are precursors of "nuevo flamenco" (New Flamenco). Their first album was produced in 1975, with a title representative of Spain's social realities at the time: "Nuevo dia" (New Day). Read more on Last.fm
Dolores Montoya Rodriguez ("Lole," born in Sevilla, 1954) and Manuel Molina Jimenez ("Manuel," born in Ceuta, 1948) are a flamenco duo that started, as a project, in 1972. The couple was the first flamenco couple ever to target an audience not familiar with flamenco, and are precursors of "nuevo flamenco" (New Flamenco). Their first album was produced in 1975, with a title representative of Spain's social realities at the time: "Nuevo dia" (New Day). The duo, characterized by certain hippie influences, was interested in musical experimentation, mixing Arabian music with lyrics taht talked about peace, love and flowers. After 1980, the couple started solo careers, and continued with concerts and new recordings. Lole and Manuel's music has appeared in several films, as in "Flamenco," from Carlos Saura, or "Kill Bill Vol.

2," by Quentin Taratino. The daughter of their former marriage is Alba Molina, also an artist. Lole continues to make recordings of Andalusian music. Lole y Manuel son una pareja flamenca formada en 1972 por Dolores Montoya Rodríguez (Sevilla, 1954) y Manuel Molina Jiménez (Ceuta, 1948). Esta pareja fue el primer exponente de música flamenca dirigido a un público no exclusivamente flamenco y fueron precursores del nuevo flamenco. Su primer álbum se produjo en 1975 con un título muy acorde con la realidad de España en aquel entonces, el álbum se llamó Nuevo día. El duo, que reconocía tener ciertas influencias hippy realizaba experimentaciones con la música, mezclando incluso música de la cultura árabe y letras que hablaban de paz, amor y flores.

A partir del 1980 los dos miembros empiezan a trabajar por separado, realizando eventualmente conciertos y nuevas grabaciones. La música de Lole y Manuel tiene varias apariciones en el cine, destacando su participación en la película Flamenco de Carlos Saura así como Kill Bill (volumen 2) de Quentin Tarantino. La hija de su extinto matrimonio es Alba Molina, también artista. Actualmente Lole realiza algunas grabaciones de música andalusí.
