José Fernández Torres, known as Tomatito (born Almería, 1958), is a Spanish flamenco guitarist who made his name accompanying famed flamenco singer Camarón de la Isla, considered one of the all time greatest flamenco singers.

He has played support to Elton John in Madrid, toured with pianist Chano Dominguez, played along side Frank Sinatra, and teamed up with Neneh Cherry to record a version of her hit “Woman”.
His music is a unique mix of flamenco, jazz, Brazilian, and even Turkish music and he has played on some of the most important stages in the world delivering his own personal style of flamenco-jazz.
