Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Manuel Bermunez Junquera, cantaor and gypsy dancer, better known internationally in the world of flamenco art with the stage name of ANZONINI DEL PUERTO, was born in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz) in the year of 1917, and died in Seville in 1983, Ansonini Although he was born in Jerez, he lived in El Puerto (where he had a butcher's shop for many years), in Morón, Madrid and Seville, and he spent long periods on the Californian coast, because of that enormous link he had with the moronense flamenco. In fact, circulates a video on iternet that presents him as "gypsy and meat butcher of bull." In all these places he left his mark, and of all of them he fed his cantaor and bailaor style. It also happened in the 60s for the tablaos of Madrid and the Costa del Sol, as well as for the Andalusian bass festivals of the early 70s. In fact, the cantaor and bailaor did not start professionally until he was 60.
