Manuel Lombo launched his career in the bosom of the Fundación Cristina Heeren de Arte, where he studied flamenco singing under teachers Naranjito de Triana and José de la Tomasa. It was ‘Don Juan Flamenco’, to be exact, the Foundation’s production which premiered in the XII Seville Bienal; one of the first large-format shows in which the artist, born in Seville in 1979, participated. Thanks to the entity, his voice also sounded in the 60th anniversary of Dior in Versailles. In his recordings, situated between flamenco singing and flamenco-influenced songs, feature the titles ‘Manuel Lombo’ (2006), ‘Siete pormenores’ (2008), ‘Cante, incienso y mirra’ (2009) and ‘Personaje raro’ (2010). His versatility has lead him to collaborate in a diversity of projects, from the Exaltación de la Saeta in the Seville Cathedral to ‘Azabache, 20 años’ with Pasión Vega, and to the Christmas concert ‘Que suenen con alegría’ together with Ismael Jordi and ‘Músicas del mundo. Un mar de amores’ in the Alcázar of Jerez. He returns to flamenco singing with ‘Lombo Flamenco’ in the series Flamenco Viene del Sur 2011, a concert which lead him to forums such as the National Auditorium of Music in Madrid. He has done it without leaving behind his other facets: in 2014 he embarked hand in hand with director and pianist José Miguel Évora in the concert ‘Canción sentimental’, where he covered the classic melodic songs of all time, including ‘Fly me to the moon’. Among his latest recordings are ‘Yo’ (2016) and ‘Lombo x Bambino’ (2017).
