Ricardo Vázquez


Ricardo Vázquez

Ricardo Vázquez Amador was born on 21 January 1984 in Madrid. Since he was a child he has experienced flamenco in the family environment thanks to the fact that all his uncles sing or play the guitar.

He inherited his art from his grandmother Josefa “Pepa” Amador Montes, a gypsy old woman with a special gift for singing and dancing.

Her great-grandfather José gave her her first guitar when she was only 3 years old. Since then, Ricardo Vázquez’s curiosity for music has not ceased. At the age of 12 he received his first lesson from Aquilino Jiménez “El Entri” from the neighbourhood of Caño Roto, one of the best flamenco guitar teachers in Spain.

Ricardo Vázquez has an international career.

His first encounter on stage was with the cantaora Celia Flores -daughter of the famous actress Marisol Flores- and Aroa Fernández. From then on she began to perform in various musical groups in Madrid.

His first encounter with flamenco dancing was on the stage of the tablao Almonte, in a live performance. This guitarist progressively trained in accompaniment until he performed in tablaos such as Cardamomo and Tablao Flamenco 1911.

Shows in which he participates

He stands out in the show “Genios” (2019) together with the dancer Curro de Candela performing with the Orquesta Sinfónica RTVE at the Teatro Monumental in Madrid.

He took part in the concert series Las Noches del Monumental at the Teatro Monumental in Madrid with the Marián Moraru Group, concerts which were broadcast on the RTVE television channel, La 2.

In 2021 and 2022 he participated in shows such as Herencia and Amores Flamencos in Santander, Toledo and at the Palace Hotel (Madrid).

He worked with the conductor Luis Cobos performing music for series and with the conductor Oliver Díaz providing the flamenco guitar in works such as:

  • Partita in D minor for solo violin, BWV 1004 by J.S Bach
  • Concerto N. 2 In G Minor, RV 315 “El Verano”. III Presto by Vivaldi
  • Capriccio no. 24 by Paganini.

In 2023 he performed at the Albuquerque Flamenco Festival (USA) with the dancer Nazaret Reyes.

He currently collaborates as artistic director of the Ballet Flamenco Eterno Picasso with the artist Carlos Rodríguez of Mediaset Pro.
