Camarón de la Isla was a groundbreaking artist in flamenco art. He released a seminal innovative work, the album “La leyenda del tiempo” (The Legend of Time). That recording sought new expressions, new airs, and new sounds. Guest artists featured In “La leyenda del tiempo” included some of most innovative Spanish artists of the time: Kiko Veneno, Raimundo Amador, Tomatito, Jorge Pardo, Rubem Dantas, Gualberto and Andalusian rock band Alameda, among other artists, and the no less revolutionary producer Ricardo Pachón.

Two of those artists, Kiko Veneno and Raimundo Amador, head this new festival, FusiónxCamarón, along with Jerez-born cantaor (singer) Diego Carrasco; his nephew Maloko accompanied by his Carrasco Family; Granada artist Maka, and the whirlwind of gitano (gypsy) rock Tomasito.
