About this Act

Tomas started to play flamenco guitar at about age 9 or 10 with no professional aspirations. His father sang flamenco as an amateur and knew a few chords to accompany himself while singing. He taught these chords to his son and Tomas was thus initiated into flamenco guitar playing. Very soon he found that he loved the whole mood and sound of solo flamenco guitar and gradually taught himself mainly by watching and imitating other flamenco guitarists.

He has performed as a soloist in Spain at the prestigious flamenco festival: Festival Nacional del Cante de Las Minas, La Unión, Catedral de Santander, Centro Cultural Ramón Alonso Luzzy, Festival Nacional del Cante por Cartageneras, Teatro Circo, Cartagena.

In Britain he has performed at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Purcell Room, Royal Albert Hall Lunchtime Series, The Brighton Festival, Dundee International Guitar Festival, Northumberland International Guitar Festival, Embassy Theatre Swiss Cottage, Canning House (Latin American and Spanish Cultural Centre) Chelsea, London.

In his masterful and varied recital, the acclaimed yet modest Spanish flamenco guitarist Tomás Jiménez introduced the backgrounds and styles of various forms and origins of flamenco, from traditional Spanish styles, to his personal improvised pieces.
