Morao y Oro is one of his two solo albums, released in 1992. It features nine tracks of different flamenco forms, such as bulerías, sevillanas, tangos and malagueñas. The album showcases Moraito's mastery of the flamenco guitar, with his distinctive sound, technique and creativity. He also adds some elements of jazz, bass guitar and percussion to some of the tracks, giving them a modern touch. The album was awarded the 'Grand Prix du Disque' by the Académie Charles Cros in France.


Some of the highlights of the album are:



  • Feria del Caballo: A lively bulería that opens the album with a festive mood. Moraito plays with great energy and flair, using various techniques such as rasgueos, alzapúas and picados. He also adds some jazzy chords and bass guitar to spice up the rhythm.



  • Alameda Vieja: A beautiful sevillana that pays tribute to the old park in Jerez where Moraito used to play as a child. He plays with a nostalgic and delicate tone, using arpeggios, tremolos and harmonics. He also sings some verses in his deep voice.



  • Bronce: A stunning solo piece that showcases Moraito's virtuosity and musicality. He plays a complex and melodic composition that combines different flamenco forms, such as soleá, siguiriyas and tientos. He uses a variety of techniques, such as thumb strokes, hammer-ons, pull-offs and slurs. He also modulates between different keys and modes, creating a rich harmonic palette.




Morao y Oro is a masterpiece of flamenco guitar that demonstrates Moraito's talent and personality. It is a must-listen for any fan of flamenco music or guitar music in general.
