Tomás Jiménez Flamenco Guitarist

A family inheritance

The love for flamenco has been passed down Tomás’s family throughout the generations.

Tomás had no formal conservatoire tuition as this is not available in Spain for flamenco.

Instead Tomás learned to play flamenco guitar from his father whose teaching instilled in Tomás a respect for flamenco together with the understanding that his playing should communicate the true meaning of each piece without using superfluous effects.

His father explained to him: “No florees el toque porque el flamenco ya comunica todas las emociones y todos los sentimientos humanos sin echarle ni quitarle nada”.

Translated to English: “Don’t make the playing flowery because flamenco by itself communicates every emotion and every human sentiment and you don’t have to add to or take anything away from it”.
