In 1925 he won the Copa Pavón, and in 1926 he was granted the 2nd Llave de Oro del Cante. He sang everything well, although using the styles that prevailed then, such as fandangos, granaína and media granaína, the saeta. Read more on Last.fm

He was also an excellent siguiriya singer, outstanding at bulerías and said to dance in an extraordinary way. His cante was somewhat affected and sought effect, although nobly performed. Guitarists were reluctant to accompany him due to his strange ways; Niño Ricardo, for example, left him alone on the stage on an occasion. The singer Luis Caballero sees him thus: "Vallejo had a crystal voice, and when crystal breaks, it will not fix.

Nerves, doubt, a brush, the slightest distortion in the diaphanous musical purpose of his voice, could break the perfect tuning of the miracle. Thus the eccentric precautions everyone speaks of. He was melodic, harmonious and rhythmic, a musical trilogy that is almost unknown in the artistic makeup of a singer. The nervousness of his echo lacked body, which was filled in by his "angel"".

He was one of the few flamenco performers who was critical of the times in which he had to be a performer: "... Serious cante is being lost now. In our times, we just act like comedians. This makes me both sad and indignant (...) The great cante is forgotten, in crisis".

He was one of the singers with the largest record catalogue, there being nearly two hundred titles of his. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
