ARTISTBIO: José "El Fyty" Carillo de Mora
José Antonio Carrillo de Mora, "El Fyty" (1969), was born in Triana, a famous district in Sevilla for being the cradle of flamenco. Immersed since early childhood in the peculiar artistic environment that defined his neighborhood, he learned to play the guitar and developed his talent surrounded by many great names of flamenco on a daily basis. He thus acquired a very strong technique in the purest tradition with a powerful street component, enriched with a personal interest in various music genres.
His unique style of playing lead him to perform with some of the most renowned personalities of the flamenco scene on prestigious stages all over the world. Apart numerous performances at the Mont de Marsan festival (with Esperanza Fernandez, Rafael Riqueni, or dancer El Mimbre), he played for Lole Montoya, dancers Juana Maya y El Torombo, to cite just a few.
A major part of his musical career has been his work as guitarist and composer of Maria Pages dance Company. For nearly 20 years with the company he’s been touring the world’s most significant theaters ( such as Sadler’s Wells theater in London, Bunka Mura Orchard Hall in Tokyo, Auditorio Parco della Musica in Rome, National Theatre in Taipei, Esplanade Theater in Singapore,…) and had the opportunity to work with non-flamenco artists such as contemporary dance choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (“Dunas”).
While he keeps accompanying flamenco singers and dancers, based between Tel Aviv and Triana “El Fyty” has been working on his own compositions and projects reflecting his accomplished, creative and highly versatile musical mind.
