About Luis de La Tota

Born into one of the oldest Gypsy neighborhoods of Jerez de La Frontera, El Barrio de Santiago, on Flamenco's most famous street, La Calle Nueva, Jose Luis Bermudez Peña aka Luis de La Tota, takes his artistic name from his grandmother 'La Tota', who has been an inspiration to him since his infancy. Luis carries with him a distinct humor, grace, and rhythmic charisma that started his career as a percussionist and festero at the tender age of 8. Where others spend decades studying and crafting their artistry, Luis simply IS purity in the form of Flamenco. His proof is in his presence on stage and in person where he creates at the moment, in every moment, music that will have you laughing to tears or eyes tearing up until you smile once you have discovered that you could lose yourself inside the world of Luis de La Tota. As a percussionist and palmero, Luis currently tours with flamenco's top artists such as Maria Del Mar Moreno, Antonio Del Pipa, Fernando de La Morena, El Capullo, and Diego Carrasco. He is the only holder of a license to teach flamenco rhythms given by the Flamenco Foundation of Spain in 1990. He is also the 'official' percussionist for Viernes Flamencos (Flamenco Fridays) in Jerez de la Frontera Spain. As a Flamenco lyricist, his verses (letras) have been sought after recorded by respected Spanish singers such as Antonio de la Malena (Album: Yo soy Asi, Asi Soy Yo, 1997). His work as a percussionist can be heard on CD's such as Duende y Compas and Gitanos de Jerez to name a few. He currently lives in Boise Idaho where he is building a school, Escuela de Ritmo that is dedicated to the art of Flamenco rhythms, dance, and guitar. In 2013, Luis gathered his family members to perform as Familia Bermudez at the prestigious Switzerland festival, Obwald Festival. He and Familia Bermudez were invited to return to Obwald Festival in 2015 where they filmed a documentary about Luis' talented family.
