Chano Lobato

Chano Lobato (December 1927 in Cadiz - April 5, 2009 in Seville) was a Spanish flamenco singer.

Born in the Santa María neighborhood of Cadiz, he began performing at nightclubs in his hometown and later moved to Madrid, where he joined Alejandro Vega's Flamenco dance group. He became well known for performing with Antonio El Bailarín in particular, but also Manuel Morao and El Serna and for various notable dancers, including Matilde Coral.

In 1974 Lobato received the Enrique El Mellizo award at the national contest Concurso Nacional de Córdoba and in 1996 he received the Medalla de Andalucía (Medal of Andalusia).

Although he was one of the top singers in the flamenco genre, he only recorded in the studio twice, La nuez moscá (1996) and Azúcar cande (2000).[1]

According to writer and flamencologist Manuel Ríos Ruiz, "Chano Lobato is an artist who gets emotional when he sings, who gets drunk with his singing, and quickly transmits his purest essence to the knowledgeable enthusiasts".[2]
