His first international stage appearance was at the age of four, on Broadway in New York City alongside his grandfather in the hit show Flamenco Puro. At the age of 11, he was featured in the film Flamenco, produced by the legendary film director, Carlos Saura, which launched Farruquito’s career and positioned him amongst the most elite flamenco artists of the world.
