Ezequiel Benitez is a typical Flamenco phenomenon from the Barrio Santiago of Jerez.
Barrio Santiago is the legendary neighborhood in Jerez where the Arte Flamenco has been passed on for centuries, generation to generation.
Terremoto was from there, La Piriñica, Sordera, Tio Jose de Paula, and now Jose Merce, Moraito, Vicente Soto and (literally) dozens of others.
Ezequiel Benitez grew up in this inspiring environment. His environment is Flamenco and he himself is involved with the Arte 24 hours a day.
Ezequiel Benitez couldn't have had a better source. At the age of 20, he was already one of the greatest young prospects in the Flamenco world.
His Cante bears witness to an inspiration and a knowledge that can only be imparted by someone who has fully immersed himself in the basics and mysteries of Cante Flamenco.
As a result, he is also a complete cantaor who, faithful to the sources where he comes from, serves the best Flamenco.
The class, the intensity, the expression…everything is so typical Jerez, so typical Barrio Santiago.
Ezequiel's talent lends itself best to the Cante Jondo. Anyone who has seen him on stage, will quickly become convinced that the magical duende is not the privilege or exclusivity of the older generation.
