MAKARINES  

The Makarines are a flamenco singing duo formed by brothers José and Maka Ibañez. Raised in the rich tradition of flamenco, their sound is at once classic and freshly modern, with beautifully layered vocals that give the music a celestial feel.   

Their hallmark flamenco fusion and easy listening style defies categorization yet is still rooted in the tradition of flamenco cante.   

Growing up in Triana, they attribute their love of music to their grandfather Segundo who instilled in the brothers a love of singing and harmony. Later, their musical education consisted of singing night after night in every corner of their neighborhood.  

While their first performances were purely for fun, they soon started performing professionally, debuting at the flamenco tablao La Madrugá in Seville.  

Since then, they’ve shared the stage with renowned cantaores and bailaores such as Diego Carrasco, Diego del Morao, La Tana, and María Jiménez, Juan de Juan, Joaquín Grilo, and Jesús Carmona, to name a few, and have also collaborated with Chiquetete and Radio Makandé.   

The Makarines have also taken part in festivals such as the Mont de Marsans and Cante de las Minas de La Unión and have also performed at Teatro Alameda and Teatro Central.  

In 2005, the Makarines recorded the self-titled album Makarines with pianist Pablo Suárez, bassist Pepe Bau, and percussionist Joaquín Migallón. Since then, they have recorded the albums PrefieroDos Manos un Pincel, and Tierra 

In 2019, they performed as backup singers for Rosalía at the Billboard Women in Music annual event in Los Angeles. 

The Makarines came to Santa Barbara in 2013 when they performed as cantaores with Jesús Carmona’s company for the U.S Premiere of Cuna Negra y Blanca at the Granada Theatre, with over 1,000 people in attendance. For the 2021 Flamenco Arts Festival, the Makarines will perform from the beautiful Casa Montalván in Sevilla.
