The Musicians > José Antonio Santos, "El Minero"

His love of the guitar came when he was very small, through his father, Juan "El Minero". (A nickname that comes because of his work during 20 years in the mines of Puertollano and that he inherited from him) specifically at the age of 8 years he started to study guitar with Professor José Medina

He continued his studies in flamenco guitar with Ernest Fenollosa "The Chufa" (great Valencian teacher).

He studied music at the Santa Cecilia music group in Sedaví and the Catarroja Conservatory in Valencia.

At 16 he began to teach guitar at the Casa de Andalucía in Valencia, later at the Casa de Andalucía in Silla and the Andalusian Center of Alfafar in Valencia.

At 17 he joined the rociero group CANTORES DEL SUR with 2 recordings, the most prominent of them: Baila con los Cantores, which sold about 5,000 copies.
