He comes from a family of Gypsy intellectuals in Madrid: artists, actors and writers, including painter Antonio Maya and dancer Fernanda Romero. He has collaborated with many of the most well-known flamenco artists including Farruquito, El Güito,Manolete, Estrella Morente, Gerardo Núñez and Diego El Cigala, and has opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé and Björk. He was featured as the main dancer in Gypsy filmmaker Tony Gatlif's recent performance project "Vertigo" which toured throughout Europe. As a member of Grammy-winning guitarist Tomatito's sextet he thrilled US audiences on an East Coast tour in 2008. Maya now returns to perform with his own company at Festival Flamenco Gitano in NYC and San Francisco, hot off a busy year of performances including the prestigious 2010 Bienal del Arte Flamenco de Sevilla, International Flamenco Festivals in Brazil and Albuquerque New Mexico and the 2011 Flamenco Festival de Jerez.
