Who is Canelita?

His album, Vuelvo, released in November 2010, alternates traditional flamenco singing ballads and pop tunes, seeking to reach a mass audience. He has traveled to France and Germany with flamenco groups. Canelito is mainly noted for his fandango and Bulerias, but can also sing rumba and tangos.
