José Luis Postigo Guerra was born in Seville in San Juan de Dios Street in the neighbourhood of Nervión in 1950. His family moved later to the Amate area, where her father ran a tavern. It was there, among amateur flamenco singers and customers where he developed his vocation. His art woke up through the flamenco dance, and thus he worked as flamenco dancer for ten years, first as a hobby and then professionally. However, it was the call of the magical world of the flamenco guitar what made him change the course of his artistic orientation.
Antonio Osuna, from San Bernardo Street, put the first notes as his master and took him down the path of learning the guitar. Fidelity to his teacher has always guided him. He always speaks of him with a great affection and the gratitude of a good disciple. Manolo Franco, Quique walls, Mendiola, etc. also attended guitar classes by those years.
José Luis loves his career, and he boasts one of the best Flamenco guitars collections that are the admiration of the guitar professionals. With his guitars, he has travelled around the world within the best flamenco companies and always with the top artists. Among his happiest memories, he recalls his special guitar performance accompanying Antonio Mairena in the Seville Town Hall, with occasion of the appointment of this master from Los Alcores as honorary citizen of Seville.
