About Me

From San José del Valle and born in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, Mónica Clavijo got to know flamenco since her childhood as her father, Chiriva del Valle, was himself a flamenco singer. Assiting to his concerts and listening flamenco were quite natural to her.

Still she decided to start singing flamenco much later, while living in Vienna, Austria.  

 

She deepened his knowledge in the world wide known Christina Heeren Flamenco Fundation and by her teachers:

- Ezequiel Benitez (nominated to the Latin Grammys 2020)  from Jerez.

- María José Pérez ( Lámpara Minera Award 2015 at the famous Festival del Cante de las Minas de La Unión), from Almería.

- Manuel Romero (Antonio Mairena,  Membrillo de Oro and Calixto Sánchez Awards) from Sevilla.
