Rafael Ojeda Rojas (born 1978 in Seville),[1] better known as Falete (Spanish pronunciation: [faˈlete]), is a Spanish flamenco singer.


Falete's father was a founding member of the musical group Cantores de Híspalis.[2] At the age of 17, he made his debut at the Teatro Lope de Vega, Seville, where he sang for La Chunga. In the mid-90s, he traveled around the United States, singing alongside Juanito Valderrama, José Menese and José Manuel Soto.[3]

In 1997, Falete starred in the anthology Novísimos, huele a flamenco. He traveled to Japan in 2002 with La Paquera de Jerez to tour theaters until 2004, when he released his debut album Amar duele, which rendered him a national musical and media figure.[3] It was a compilation of covers of some of his favorite songs. The album won a Disco de Oro and was on the list of bestselling albums for over 10 months.[4]
