Antonio Carbonell was born the 30th of November 1969 in Madrid. He is a Spanish singer-songwriter of Romani heritage, belonging to a generation of "new flamencos" that manage to combine traditional and modern music.

He belongs to a family involved in flamenco music: his father is the "cantaor" Montoyita, and his cousins, the members of the popular flamenco-pop band Ketama, wrote his Eurovision entry.

He was popular for his collaborations with important flamenco artists when he released his first album Ilusiones. In 1996 he was chosen internally by TVE as the Spanish representative for the 41st Eurovision Song Contest, and published his second album, ¡Ay, Qué Deseo!. Apart from his two solo albums, he has contributed to several flamenco compilation albums, like Cante Gitano or Esencias Flamencas.

He is currently music producer for the Spanish dancer Joaquin Cortes, and has not stopped stepping on stage accompanying other artists like his niece, Estrella Morente.

Ketama

The composers happened to be Ketama, a popular Spanish New Flamenco group. Fusing flamenco with other musical styles (salsa, Brazilian music, reggae, funk, jazz), they created their own sound that lied somewhere between flamenco and salsa-pop. The brothers Antonio, Juan and Josemi Carmona made up the trio, named after a Morocan region in the heart of Rif. They disbanded in 2004, after 20 years and more than 15 albums together.

Quise buscar las huellas bajo tus pies Quise mirar al cielo y ser Un horizonte de estrellas y mar Y navegar por esos mares de coral Buscaré Allí donde mi sueños se hagan realidad Atarme con tu pelo Ay, qué deseo Provoca tu piel Sigo tus huellas De caramelo y miel Entre la espuma y ser Ser del ancho mar Hacer de tu mirar Ecos de un edén Entre la espuma y ser Atarme en tu interior Ecos del amor Un verso y una flor Ay, qué deseo Provoca tu piel Sigo tus huellas De caramelo y miel Quise buscar las huellas bajo tus pies Quise mirar al cielo y ser Un horizonte de estrellas y mar Y navegar por esos mares de coral Buscaré Allí donde mi sueños se hagan realidad Atarme con tu pelo Ay, qué deseo Provoca tu piel Sigo tus huellas De caramelo y miel
I wanted to find the prints under your feeet I wanted to look at the sky and be a horizon of stars and sea and sail accross those coral and seas. I'll try there, where my dreams come true, to blind myself to your hair. Oh! I want you so! Your skin calls me so I follow your sweetened and honeyed footsteps. Between the foam and being, being from the wide seas, turning your look into echoes of eden, Between the foam and being, binding myself to your inner self, reberverations of love, a verse and a flower. Oh! I want you so! Your skin calls me so I follow your sweetened and honeyed footsteps. I wanted to find the prints under your feeet I wanted to look at the sky and be a horizon of stars and sea and sail accross those coral and seas. I'll try there, where my dreams come true, to blind myself to your hair. Oh! I want you so! Your skin calls me so I follow your sweetened and honeyed footsteps.
