"Singer and actress. Her art was intuitive and she abandoned her entire temperament, personality and faculties to it."

Born in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz) in 1923, Lola excelled in singing from early on. In 1940, she attended the academy run by master Quiroga in Madrid. In 1944, Flores, together with Manolo Caracol, performed in the musical "Zambra", which toured successfully all over Spain. The collaboration of this artistic couple extended to 1951. The 50’s and 60’s brought a true artistic path as she went on tours of America, recording albums and appearing in films. These latter included most notably "Lola torbellino", "Los tres amores de Lola", "Maricruz", "La Faraona", "María de la O" and "Venta de Vargas". During the last years of her life, Lola Flores also worked on television. She married Antonio González “el Pescaílla” and they had three children. She was known artistically as “La Faraona”. She died in Madrid in 1995.
