Juan Rafael Cortés Santiago, known as Duquende (born 1965[1]), is a Spanish Romani flamenco singer (cantaor). Born in Sabadell, Spain, Duquende is considered a successor to influential Flamenco singer Camarón de la Isla.[1] Since 1997, Duquende has been a member of the Paco de Lucía Sextet in addition to working as a solo artist.[1][2]

In 1996, Duquende was the first cantaor to be invited to perform at the Champs Elysées theatre in Paris.[1][2]
