As the epicenter of the flamenco world, Villa Rosa was the springboard for many artists, although they did not always go directly to the stage.
It is said that the famous cantaor Miguel Molina started at the Villa Rosa, but as a purse-saver, as the security guards who prevented pickpockets and pickpockets from robbing customers in the heat of the party were called at the time. It was during a staff break when his bosses heard him sing and were amazed. Obviously, they changed the functions of the young Miguel who went on to perform on the stage.
A similar case was that of Juanito Valderrama, who started out working as a waiter, and was discovered by pure chance when he was singing in the staff locker room.
