Throughout Asia he combines Flamenco, Tango, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Rock and Asian influences for a dynamic and timely performance in clubs, on television, and in film. Carmona is a charismatic performer, a virtuso in the traditions of his home town of Sevilla, Spain.
Abraham Carmona was born in 1981 in Sevilla, Spain into a “gitano” (gypsy) family with a strong history of traditional Flamenco music. His experience and personal history in the south of Spain was immersed in the culture and music of gypsy life. The Carmona family has many generations of Flamenco influence.
