José Valencia took his first steps singing with his uncle, Luis de Lebrija. Being just a child he sang “soleá”, in addition to his “aceitunitas partías” (broken olives) song that he loved singing by “bulerías”. José was just 5 years old when he first acted of a stage, and he does alongside figures like Camarón, Fernanda, Bernarda, Manuel de Paula, José Meneses or Lebrijano, among others. Few artists have had such an important debut at such a young age. The most important dance companies have claimed his singing: Antonio Canales, Eva Yerbabuena, Belén Maya, Joaquín Grilo, Manuela Carrasco, Farruquito and Andrés Marín, among others. No less than three “Giraldillos” endorse him: “Breakthrough Artist”, “Singing for dancing” and “Singing”. No other flamenco artist has obtained three Giraldillos, which are the most important awards that are awarded today in the world of flamenco. His two albums: “Solo flamenco” and “Directo” have received great public and critical success.
