Ismael de la Rosa “El Bola”

He performs singing courses at the Esperanza Fernández Flamenco and Dance Art Center and completes his training at the hands of cante figures such as Curro Fernández.

Flamenco comes to this Sevillian by inheritance. Since boy he got used to the

scenarios of flamenco festivals around the world, accompanying the rest of his family, the Fernández Family, who wasted art from the oldest to the youngest of its members. Who took him by the hand was his uncle Curro Fernández. After the performance of theirs, “El Bola” always had his place at the end of the party.

He began his professional work with only 7 years old and took his first steps in the Biarritz Festival with the Fernández Family. He continues to perform on stage with the Tribute to Bernarda de Utrera at the Teatro Maestranza in Seville with the show “4 generaciones”, accompanied by his great-grandfather Juan José Fernández, his great-uncle Curro Fernández and his father Ismael Fernández.

He was previously in that theater at the Flamenco Biennial of Sevilla with the bailaora La Niña de los Cupones and the show “30 decibelios”, which was also held in cities such as Cádiz, Madrid and Jerez.
