Juan Peña Fernández, also known as Juan Peña "El Lebrijano" or simply El Lebrijano, was born in Lebrija, province of Seville, Spain, in 1941 and grew up in a prominent Gitano (Roma) musical family, being the nephew of Perrate de Utrera. He began to play Spanish guitar as a child, accompanying dancers like La Paquera de Jerez, but eventually turned to Flamenco singing. In 1964, he won the championship at the Competition of Mairena del Alcor, one of the most important Flamenco music festivals. Within years, he was regarded indeed as one of the greatest voices of flamenco. A few years later, in 1970, he started his collaboration with famous guitarist Paco de Lucía.

His most recent musical works include Andalusi influences, with albums such as Casablanca, Open Doors and Encuentros.
