His gravelly voice changed the history of flamenco and moved the entire world. José Monge Cruz, alias Camarón de la Isla, began revealing his gift when he was just a child. Nervous, passionate, magnetic, his art grew unstoppably and took a turn that was revolutionary. From his birth in San Fernando to his early death from lung cancer, passing through his Madrid period, his collaborations with Paco de Lucía, his marriage to Chispa and his most memorable concerts, this book is a magical tribute to a man whose life was brief, but whose impact was eternal.
The illustrated biography of flamenco’s greatest icon.
