Their music is expansive, they sing with the souls of gypsies and will transport their audiences through a journey that moves them to dance, sing and cry.

Both Rafael and Cristobal showed promise at an early age and were encouraged to sing by their mother, Maria Teresa Laguna Santos.  Rafael began singing his first harmony at the age of 8, Cristobal started at age 6, singing songs of Joselito.  Rafael was highly influenced and studied guitar with musical greats such as Maestro Sabicas and Maestro Mario Escudero.

The brothers performed for 12 years at the Metropolitan Opera in "Carmen" at Lincoln Center. They play for audiences around the world, including Paris, Moscow, London, Chile, Rome, and New York City.   Los Cintron have performed with a host of notable artists, including Gazpacho Andalu, Duende Camaron, Lito y Manolo, Los Canasteros, Sonia Olla, Ismael Fernandez and Barbara Martinez.

Together they celebrate the expressive flamenco as it takes on a new character and exposes the audience to the warmth of the human spirit as expressed through the music. The artistry of the musicians and singers create a spectacle that is a treat for both the eye and the soul. Come experience an evening of Iberian gypsy culture with the cast of this captivating celebration!
