Cristo Cortés was born in Marseille into a family of singers with origin of the region of Almeria (Andalusia). Since he was 6 years old, he performed in various marriages and juergas, then quickly on stage with his brothers.

In 1996, he toured, with the big singer Carmen Linares, a tour through France and Spain where participle Antonio el Pipa as well as guitarists Juan Carlos Romero and José Maria Bandera, Paco de Lucia’a nephew. In Paris, Salle Pleyel, he sings in an adaptation of The brief life of Manuel de Falla with the national orchestra of Île-de-France under the direction of Jacques Mercier. During the year 1998, he is invited to sing to the tablao Café de Chinitas in Madrid then in Los Gallos with several dancers in Sevilla. He participates in the biennial flamenca de Lyon as well as the one of Seville. He toured for five months in Tokyo with the dancer Juan André Maya. Cristo has been touring throughout Europe, the United States and Mexico since 1999 with various dancers such as Andrés Marin, Carmen Ledesma, Choro Molina and Jose Maya. He performed in the opening of the Festival de Nîmes with artists such as Tomatito, Nino of Pura, Manolo Franco and Marina Heredia. He has performed with Paquera deJerez and later toured in France with the show Romancero gitano of Federico Garcia Lorca under the artistic direction of Vicente Pradal, celebrated by the critique in Le Monde and LeFigaro.

Cristo Cortés is recognized as the best flamenco singer in France, respected and solicited by many artists through the world thanks to his unique voice tone and to his deep knowledge of the flamenco art (song, dance, guitar) associated to years of experience on stage.


Emilio Cortes is the son of Antonio de la Foca and the nephew of Cristo Cortés.

Versatile, between singing and percussion, he is part of this young generation of "modern" gypsies and open to all influences. He has accompanied great dancers such as Choro Molina, Ivan Vargas and Pepe Torres.

The timbre of his voice, so particular, has echoes of ancient song so that unintentionally, he revives the forgotten style of the "cantaores" of the beginning of the century like Antonio Chacon or Manolo Caracol. Emilio has been bringing all his creativity and talent to the forefront. His old and sensual style brings up to date a traditional repertoire and gives a completely different register from anything that has been done in recent times.
