"Multidisciplinary artist moving between flamenco, rumba and modern pop. The fusion of these genres is his mark of identity.
 "

José María López Sanfeliu, also known as Kiko Veneno, was born in Figueras (Girona) in 1952. He studied philosophy and letters and later travelled throughout Europe and the United States, where he went to concerts of artists that influenced his career such as Frank Zappa and Bob Dylan. Kiko was also far from Spain when he rediscovered flamenco. In 1975, in a meeting that would mark a turning point in his life, he met the brothers Rafael and Raimundo Amador, with whom he formed the group Veneno. In 1977, his group published an album with the same name, produced by Ricardo Pachón, now considered an absolutely fundamental album in Spanish music. In 1982, he published his first solo album and participated in the famous Movida Madrileña. His disc “Dice la gente” came out in September 2010.
