El Moreno - Flamenco Singer

El Moreno began studying flamenco dance in New Mexico with 
Rafael Martos during the María Benitez Santa Fe Flamenco Festival.
Soon after, he was introduced to the flamenco cante (singing) by
guitarist Ives Lucero. Under the artistic direction of Ramona 
Garduño, El Moreno began performing as a singer and dancer with group Aire Flamenco in 1998. He studied with many renowned spanish artists such as dancers Joaquin Hidalgo, Joaquin Ruiz, Javier Latorre, Antonio Granjero, Domingo Ortega, Manuel Betanzos, Rafael Campallo and Andres Marín and singers Silverio Heredia, Cristo Cortez, José Anillo and Juan Suarez. In 1999 El Moreno moved to the San Francisco Bay area and has since been performing with many local artists while continuing the dance training with Carola Zertuche and Yaelisa, among others. Since July 2004, Azriel is a member of the Riquezas Flamenco Dance Company.
