Jonatan Penalba

Valencian singer Jonatan Penalba was born in l’Alcúdia (La Ribera Alta) in 1991, and despite his youth he is a veteran in the world of traditional song. At the age of 5 he was singing albaes, and became part of the Les Folies de Carcaixent Popular Dancing Group before turning 18. With them, he played in many festivals throughout Spain.

His voice (someone said “he sings like the old ones”) was trained by the singing teachers Pep Moreno (in the case of the albaes) and the great Victoria Sousa “Victorieta” (for the cant d’estil).
