Juan Luis Vega, ‘Maera’ is one of the singers who is part of the cast of artists of the Tablao El Palacio Andaluz. Son of Manuel ‘Maera’ and Esperanza, ‘la del Maera’, a popular spanish singer, and member of a family saga linked to the world of flamenco and the bull, ‘Maera’ could not be anything other than an artist or ‘singer to dance flamenco’, as he defines himself.
He is confessed a lover of flamenco, by tradition and vocation. Raised in Triana (Seville), he lost the ‘shame’ of singing in public in Italy and, since then, he has not stopped wasting his art on stages around the world. He has worked with artists such as Rafael Riqueni, Carmen Linares, Israel Galván, Esperanza Fernández, Rafael de Carmen, Curro Fernández, Tía Juan la del Pipa, El Pipa, La Tana, Rafael Utrera and Pepe de Pura, among others.
He participated in the recording of the album Orobroy de Dorantes. He has been a finalist of the National Flamenco Art Award of Córdoba with Amador Rojas and has won the first prize in the National Flamenco Art Contest ‘Ciudad de Ubrique’, with Sofía Jiménez de la Rosa and with Emilio Ramírez ‘El Duende’, with whom I share the stage in El Palacio Andaluz today. At the Flamenco Festival of Cante de Lo Ferro, he also took, along with other colleagues, Melon de Oro.
Linked to El Palacio Andaluz since 1994, you can see ‘Maera’ live on the flamenco show that welcomes our tablao every night.
