Renowned flamenco artists put on a show to remember in Torremolinos, as they honored the life of the famous dancer, ‘El Carrete’, José Losada.

The dancers got together on Sunday night to pay homage to the flamenco woman who had an extraordinary 70-year career.

The show at the Príncipe de Asturias municipal auditorium was sold out as fans flocked from all over Torremolinos and Málaga.

Losada started dancing in the streets of Malaga when she was only four years old.

From there he was discovered and worked in hotels and tablaos throughout the province of Malaga. He spent three years (1969-1973) in the Salón de Fiestas Las Cuevas in the Alhambra in Torremolinos, together with Carmen Caracuel.

He also spent two seasons in Madrid, working in main tablaos such as Villa Rosa, where he lined up staunch followers such as Antonio Gades or Farruco.

Losada has also danced all over the world, in Morocco, Finland, Germany and France.

For three years he had his own tablao, the Rincón Flamenco de Pepe Carrete.

Currently, the 82-year-old man continues to give flamenco dance classes in Torremolinos.

The Sunday night show included a grand finale featuring some 20 of Málaga’s most influential artists, leaving Losada on the verge of tears.
