Niņo Ricardo
Birth: Jul. 11, 1904
Death: Apr. 14, 1972

Influential Spanish guitarist who accompanied many great singers. Born Miguel Serrapi Sanchez. His career began in 1924 by accompanying La Nina Do Los Peines and her brother, Tomas Pavon. He is considered by some to be the most accomplished fandango player of all time and he played a significant part in the evolution of the flamenco guitar. His fingernails grew in a peculiar upward curve and are believed to have been responsible to a great extent for his unique tone and style. In 1945 he had a throat operation, which left him with a deep, raspy voice that is audible on recordings in which he hums along and offers encouraging remarks to the singer. He recorded with many singers, including Pastora, El Carbonerillo, Mazaco, Antonio and Manuel Mairena, Fernanda y Bernarda, Caracol and Talega. (bio by: Bunny Boiler)
