Diego

Born in 1973 into one of the elite families of Seville's Tres Mil Viviendas neighborhood, by the young age of 11, Diego Amador was already playing professionally and had mastered drums, guitar, piano, and bass, and possessed an unusually powerful voice. He joined the revered flamenco rock band Pata Negra founded by his brothers Raimundo and Rafael. Now considered one of the few flamenco masters on the piano, he developed his own self-taught method and is able to adapt traditional guitar accompaniment formats to the keyboard, winning the admiration of his colleagues in the flamenco sphere.
He has also played with La Susi, Remedios Amaya and Joaquin Grilo and is a long-time member of Tomatito's Sextet. Internationally, Amador has collaborated with artists such as Larry Coryell, Luis Salinas, Alex Acuna, Birelli Lagrene and Jerry Gonzalez. As one of the most gifted young musician-composers of the current flamenco scene, he remains very much rooted in the unique gypsy approach to rhythm and harmonic structure and is thus hailed as a provocative, innovative and creative force within flamenco's evolution. His skills are showcased on his Fantasy Records release Piano Jondo on which he plays practically every instrument. His genius and trademark magnetism or "duende" are also amply reflected in live performances.
