Tomasito’s activity is amazing. He acts with his flamenco-rock band in festivals and still has time to work with jazz bands like Wynton Marsalis, Chano Dominguez and Chick Corea.
Mont de Marsan Flamenco Festival calls him for a Master Class, and in the meanwhile he plays in the rock band G-5 too.

Biography

It is said that once Tomasito addressed to the Great Lola Flores (his guru, who introduced him into music) asking: “Master, what should I do?” She gave a straight answer: “Tomás, you do whatever you want”.

And it is so that Tomás Moreno Romero, born in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), does whatever he wants.
During his childhood he started singing in his neighborhood and was claimed to act in the special New Year's Eve TV show in 1986 and in many clubs and nightclubs in Madrid, Seville and Barcelona. From 1989 to 1993 tours the whole world (Australia, America, Europe...) acting in the company of the well-known guitarist Paco Peña.
In 1994 he recorded his first album, called "Torrotrón."

Tomasito's musical talent is almost unique. With a solid flamenco training acquired in the neighborhood of Santiago (Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz), he is able to adapt any music to flamenco: rock like AC/DC, tangos, break-dance "bulerías", blues, funk, rap, punk, hip-hop...

Tomasito has been hardened in "tablaos" (flamenco stages), flamenco clubs and nightclubs all over Spain. He has been in TV together with Lola Flores and toured the world with the guitarist Paco Peña. He has also taken his awesome creativity to national and international festivals such as Esparrago Rock, Montreal Jazz Festival, Festival de Jazz de Vitoria, Festival Actual de Logroño, San Fermin in Pamplona, Womad Cáceres ...
Singers and musicians such as Diego Carrasco, guitarists Juan Isidro Muñoz and Diego, composer Antonio de los Rios, El Madriles or Kelvis Ochoa (singer and composer from "Havana Abierta") have collaborate in his records.

As a dancer Tomasito is also unique, inimitable master of a style that is not learned at any school. It is an electric dancing typical of his restless and curious character. His album "Cositas de la Realidad" (2002) includes a characteristic "zapateado" of him.

Tomasito comes to the stage in his inseparable "Martinelli" shoes. Those are protagonists in his shows, in his songs, as Tomas' vibrant heel stamping is mixed with drums and guitars making this musical expression amazing.

Discography

In 1994 he recorded his first album for Divucsa called "Torrotrón" launched all over Spain along with a television special collaboration with Lola Flores.

His second work, "Tomasito", published by EPIC, becomes reference for many musicians looking for a special style fusion. Tomasito acts as supporting artist for “Tear for Fears”, where he obtained a great recognition and commercial success.
