Flamenco percussionist Samuel Flores comes from the gyspy flamenco family Los Flores and was raised in Arcos de la Frontera, a historic pueblo outside Jerez de la Frontera, Andalucia. Born into a legacy family of flamenco singers, dancers and musicians, Samuel began playing percussion before his feet even reached the ground sitting on the Cajon! Samuel began touring as a flamenco artist as a small child with his familym, all dancers and musicians to huge acclaim in Andalucia and throughout Spain.

Samuel was for many years the percussionist for Ballet Nacional de España (The National Ballet of Spain) touring and performing in the best theatres all over the world. He has accompanied everyone from Antonio Canales, Merche Esmeralda and Juan Manuel Canizares to Chano Dominguez, Fernando Romero, Lola Greco, Diego Losada, Belen Lopez, Domingo Ortega … the list goes on.


Samuel’s dynamic sounds, complicated patterns and innate sense of rhythm are not to be missed!
