My dear people, I explain in this short text the whole project so that you know what it is all about. HUMANA RAÍZ is the album I present to you and it is my most personal work to date, as everything has been composed by me and the people who have accompanied me since I started in this beautiful and enigmatic world of music. The CD will be accompanied by a small book (disc-book format) where you will be able to read, among other things, the lyrics that are the backbone of it and that are of my authorship.

The disc will be composed of 12 songs with the impressive music that emanates from the guitars of my two faithful companions David Caro and Antonio de la Luz. The production is on our account. The album will be accompanied by lyrics, photographs, illustrations of friends and some more memories that will make it a sincere account of my way of understanding the world.

Although the album is in the process of being prepared, we have already contracted more than 20 concerts of presentation throughout the country of which we will be informing punctually.

About the rewards

The rewards are the considerations you will receive for your GENEROSITY. There is a wide range of possibilities, from the most basic and no less necessary for me, to the extent of your possibilities. Each of these rewards are explained in the sections and will always, always, bring my SINCERE HEART THANKS to each and every patron.

The special edition album will present sensible differences in the content of the book and the edition, where there will appear contributions of people very dear to me, artists of a very high level who give writings, illustrations, small essays... It will be, in short, a special format with limited edition.

Who we are

The people who are part of HUMANA RAÍZ are musicians by family tradition, since we have learned flamenco in the closest nucleus and, fortunately, we continue cultivating it and sharing it with ours. The musical path has taken us to very distant places, from Japan to Brazil, United States, Iran or China, where we have been acquiring more artistic and human sensitivity.

**David Caro started playing with me when he was just 16 years old. We met at the final of the Minas de La Union Competition. He was 15 and I was 26, one day before he brought me the Mining Lamp for 'Graná'. From then on, and for 12 years now, we have forged a relationship that goes beyond the professional, we consider ourselves family. David plays with amazing depth and harmony.

The same could be said of Antonio de la Luz, who I know even before in the surroundings of that flamenco temple called Peña de La Platería. There, both teenagers, we've listened to the best of them on many nights. Antonio combines his work in the town hall of Alhendín, his village, with professional performances, and he is a faithful companion and a player of fine taste.

**Javier Rabadán is not only one of the best percussionists on the face of the earth right now, but also one of the best fans in the world of flamenco. He has a musical knowledge that makes him a must and brings a serenity and a tone to the recording and the live performance that enhances any song. Another brilliant signing for my flamenco team/friends.

And I am immensely lucky to have Anabel Moreno as a guest artist who is one of my muses and inspirations. I was always surprised by her, that on stage she was a dancer of the tronio who imposed (and imposes) and on earth she is the closest, kindest, most attentive and human person I have found among flamenco artists. That duality makes her, for me, a magical being. A gift of life and of the stage. Her collaboration, which will be extended to live shows, is an honour for me.

What will we use your contributions for

I come from a working family and I consider myself, as I said Antonio Gades, a cultural worker. In that sense, I have always tried to live up to those who give their all on stage with me and compensate them in the best way. All I offer them is little. Your art and your loyalty are priceless. But with this crowfunding we intend to cover many expenses.

Your contributions will allow us to keep up with most of these expenses, to be able to pay the artists with dignity, to make a record with total freedom, without depending on the criteria of record companies which, more committed to selling than to art itself, limit the creativity of those who depend on them. In addition to these expenses, it would be necessary to register as authors and obtain the corresponding permits to put into circulation HUMANA RAÍZ.


By the time this crowfunding gets going, we'll be in the middle of the recording process. During the months of November and December 2019 we have been retouching the lyrics and shaping the music. January has been the month chosen for rehearsals and between February and March we will record and mix the album.

The release of the album is scheduled for the second week of April. On April 25th the presentation will take place in** Madrid and on **May 1st in Granada, the people who attend the concerts in Madrid and Granada, will receive their reward at the entrance of the theatre.

The rest of the patrons will receive their reward during the first fortnight of May.
