From those days, The Potito has managed to cross the desert that all prodigy children must take at the time of adolescence leaning on the best teachers he could find: Tomatito, Jorge Pardo and Carles Benavent, Ketama etc. His collaborations in the albums of these artists have been remarkable and he has performed with them worldwide.
Mia Pa Los Restos was the album that meant the beginning of a fruitful maturity- at the age of nineteen!- of El Potito and it was a Flamenco recording without concessions, that his musicality and exquisite sense of the rhythm made accessible to a wide audience. Tangos and tanguillos such as "La niña del canastero" and "Mia pa los restos" were heard on the radio and in all the bars but the disk also included a seguidilla of considerable seriousness and several masterful cantes por bulerias.
El Potito's most recent recording, titled "El Ultimo Cantaor (The Last Flamenco Singer) shows a young creator full of inspiration and he is able to test the limits of the Flamenco music that is made today. On this recording by El Potito he shows his expertise at the cante por bulerias, sometimes allowing himself to be possessed by the soul of the legendary Niña de los Peines and other times experimenting, singing with only percussion accompaniment or creation a whole new way to perform the jaleos extreños together with Carles Benavent, Guadiana and Ramón El Portugués. He also sings fandangos and tarantas and surprises listeners with his good taste and feeling in the pop songs "Viento Amargo" (Bitter Wind) and "Romance de la Luna", that were written expressly for him by the Barbería del Sur.
In addition to being at one of his best moments ever as far as recordings, El Potito has also reached an outstanding live performance by working with Tomatito and by creating his own really solid band by gathering some of the best musicians of his generation.
El Potito thinks that all kinds of music can be fused. Traditional Flamenco has already been invented and now needs to evolve. Even though he likes purity, he is a young musician and has no choice but to advance.
