Ricardo Fernández, known as El Tete, is a young dancer born in Badalona into a gypsy family and who, despite his youth, has already earned his place in the field of flamenco dance. Brother of the bailaor El Yiyo Fernández, he shows through his strength and elegance a great artistic maturity in each performance, which has been worth obtaining great reviews from flamenco amateurs and professionals. Among his most direct references are Joaquín Cortés, José Maya, Farruquito and his brother El Yiyo.
