Antonio Sánchez was born in Madrid in 1984. From his career it can be noted that he started in the world of guitar at an early age with his uncles Paco de Lucía and Ramón de Algeciras, and his cousin Jose María Bandera. From there, he continued studying with Juan Manuel Cañizares.
He began to work in Madrid in some of the most important tablaos as well as in the ballet of Antonio Márquez. He also worked at the tablao in Tokyo (Japan) with Domingo Ortega for six months.
Later, he spent eight months at the Tablao Cordobés, in Barcelona, where he was able to meet and work with some of the best first-rate flamenco artists in dance, singing or guitar.
As a guitarist he has performed in many shows and was the second guitar of the septeto de Paco de Lucía, with whom he toured the world on tour for four years until the death of the maestro in february 2014.
“The first part of my life with the guitar has been at the flamenco school Amor de Dios in Madrid, which was where I started playing, basically. To play and feel myself guitarist.
»The second part was the step that Paco de Lucía gave me and took place when I went to work with him.
»And in the tablao I feel like at home. Because there’s a lot of love on stage, there’s a lot of quality and it’s like being at home. You feel very grateful and very accomplished».
