He belongs to a family involved in flamenco music: he's the son of singer of "cante" Montoyita, and he's cousin to the members of the popular flamenco-pop band Ketama. He has collaborated with important flamenco artists such as Enrique Morente and Manolo Sanlúcar.
His first album, Ilusiones, had a modest reception. Later, when he was internally chosen by TVE as the Spanish representative for the 41st Eurovision Song Contest, he published his second album, ¡Ay, Qué Deseo!. With the homonym song, he got a rather average result at the contest (20th out of 23 countries).
Apart from his two solo albums, he has contributed to a number of flamenco compilation albums: Cante Gitano", Directo Desde Casa Patas, Esencias Flamencas and Lo Mejor Que Tengo.
