He was born in Tarragona in 1972, son of Andalusian. He started listening to flamenco in the cradle, and he began to play flamenco guitar at an early age. He started as a guitarist in Granada playing at dance academies and peñas accompanying the cante for almost a decade.

He started singing by chance, in the disk Graná baila por Tangos, he made a version of tangos. The bailaora (dancer) from Granada known as Angustias la Mona offered him work as a cantaor (singer) in La Reina Mora tablao, in Sacromonte, Granada, in 1997.

A year and a half later and the first time with the help of the cantaor Tony Maya, Antonio Campos started to work in some clubs in Madrid.

From this moment he begins a dazzling career without rest for all of the flamenco routes in the world, working with many of the main figures of dance such as Mario Maya, Antonio Canales, Rafaela Carrasco, Merche Esmeralda, Javier Barón, among many others.

He has been a solo cantaor and member of different projects like:

– Palo Flamenco: which blends traditional Basque music and flamenco, where Txalaparta and flamenco are given by the hand and walk on the notes of the flamenco guitar.

– Alcantara: a bridge between Morocco and Andalusia, between flamenco and Andalusian music.

– Camerata Flamenco Project: Conservatory, Jazz Club and tablao.

– Worl-Flamenco Septet: Granada, Madrid and New York, a trip to the music.
