Tomatito's Spanish guitar

The flamenco guitarist Jose Fernandez, “Tomatito”, remembers Camaron’s words, during the recording of the mythical long play, “La Layenda del tiempo” (The legend of time), at the end of the 70s. This is how “Tomatito’s Spanish guitar” starts, a documentary that will show the multiple artistic faces of this performer born in Almeria, in the South of Spain, and who accompanied the legendary flamenco singer, Camaron, at the beginning of his career.

 

Our cameras have followed Tomatito through different rehearsals, concerts and performances, on his own, with this flamenco band or with his own son Jose del Tomate, also guitarist, or performing duo with the pianist Michel Camilo besides playing with the full orchestra of the city of Almeria and the biggest figures in the flamenco singing.
