Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Name:José Manuel Ortega Heredia
Birth: 1956 Madrid
Death: 2004 Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga) Alongside Manuel Montoya (from Lole y Manuel), Paco de Lucía and a few others, Manzanita was one of the first to merge, to make progress towards developing new flamenco. Since his first record as a solo artist ("Poco ruido y mucho duende". 1978), Manzanita has been blending flamenco with rumba or pop. In the last record ("Gitano Cubano"), he has transformed sones, guaraches and boleros.
