Nino Ricardo

Niño Ricardo (July 11, 1904 – April 14, 1972), born as Manuel Serrapí, was a Flamenco composer.

Ricardo is considered by some sources as the most accomplished flamenco player of his day. He played a significant part in the evolution of the flamenco guitar. He lived in the city center of Sevilla. A child guitar prodigy, his early audiences referred to him as the son of Ricardo, leading to his stage-name Niño [de] Ricardo.
