The three Sevillian performers of Fondo Flamenco, who had not played together for more than ten years, will perform their penultimate concert of the La última cita tour next Saturday, December 3 at 9:30 p.m. at the Palau Olímpic in Badalona.
Astola, Antonio Ríos (Antónimo) and Rafa Ruda resumed contact in times of pandemic and decided to give their fans one last farewell concert in their hometown, Seville.
Due to the success they had in the Andalusian capital, Fondo Flamenco decided to organize a tour of different cities in Spain: Madrid, Zaragoza, Valencia, Bilbao, Murcia, Granada, Córdoba, Alicante and Salamanca, among others.
The Andalusian trio obtained an unexpected high demand for tickets that allowed them to take a leap across Europe and perform their first concert in London. Fondo Flamenco will conclude its tour repeating the stage at the Wizink Center in Madrid with a special concert entitled End of Party
Since the publication of their first album in 2006, Ojalá, and the following titled Contracorriente, the Sevillian group has managed to maintain more than a million monthly listeners on digital platforms. Among his most notable songs are My white star, Y que tiene él, Sevilla, Escúchame mujer or Q tal.
After their separation, Antonio Manuel, nicknamed Dipan after his parents' bakery, changed his name to Antónimo, creating his own songs and posting them on his YouTube channel. Rafael Ruda, for his part, has continued to share songs with his followers through YouTube and has given several concerts in Seville. But it has been Alejandro Astola who has kept a firmer hand when it comes to composing new songs, with a new style in which he fuses flamenco with reggae, soul or rock. In 2015, he released his album Rockallano y Canciones Perdidas, financed by crowdfunding.
