Fonco Flamenco is a group from Sevilla, Spain composed by Astola, Antonio and Rafael. The group started with Astola and Rafael at their early age of 13. Antonio came later on. Astola writes and composes the songs for the group. He is also the one credited for the idea of naming the group Fondo Flamenco. The name came as result of a comment that he made to Rafael while they were taking pictures of themselves in a tipical sevillian courtyard and he told Rafael "Let's take a picture of us with this flamenco backgroung (fondo flamenco)"... and the name of the group was born.
