Nino_Bravo’s Biography

He was born in a small Valencian town, Ayelo de Malferit, but he moved to Valencia a few years later. At age 16 she started working at the Valencian jewelry store Casa Amat, where she became a lapidary artist. He also worked as a winemaker in the restaurant run by Jesús Císcar at the Valencia Airport.

During these years he combined the work with his love of singing, founding at the end of 1962 the group Los Hispánicos, with his friends Félix Sánchez and Salvador Aranda. The musical trio became very popular in the neighborhood of Sagunto, where they performed in numerous presentations falleras, dances and festivals of the time, and became finalists in the national radio contest Fiesta in Spain. However, his bandmates decided that the world of music was not their thing and they dissolved the group.

Luis Manuel lost his job, and given his friendship with Vicente López, bassist of Los Superson, and taking advantage of the fact that they were looking for a replacement due to the loss of their singer Carlos Lardíes in a traffic accident, he joined the band, which he already owned. forever. Later on Josep Bosch, guitar soloist and Saturnino (Nino) Naredo, rhythmic guitar, founders of the ensemble, and the brothers José Juesas and Vicente Juesas, guitar and keyboard, came out. They located their place of rehearsal in the Valencian town of Catarroja in the corral of the house of one of its components, the trumpet Juan Enrique Morellá. This set was the one that accompanied him in all his performances until the end of his artistic career. However, they had to make a break in their actions for the military service of Luis Manuel, who served in Cartagena in the Navy. When he returned, he was employed in an office, and made his presentation as a soloist at the La Vall d’Uixó Song Festival in 1968.

He made his first galas and a recital at the Teatro Principal in Valencia that caused him losses. His first manager, who baptized him with the stage name of Nino Bravo, was Miguel Siurán. Subsequently, the record company Fonogram by the hand of its artistic producer Alfredo Garrido García, hired him for four years. His first single was recorded with Manuel Alejandro’s songs: Como todos y Es el viento. He went to the Barcelona song festival with the song “I must not think of you”, where he was eliminated.

But in the summer of 1969, Augusto Algueró gave him Te quiero, te quiero, a song created for the Argentinean film Kuma Ching interpreted with a different lyrics by Lola Flores and for different reasons, even though the actress Carmen Sevilla and the Singer Raphael, had not triumphed in the record market. Nino achieved with it an overwhelming success, being chosen the song of the summer. I love you, I love you, Noelia followed, Forgive me, My great love, That will be my house, My dear mother, Yellow letters, Doors of love, I am looking for, A kiss and a flower, and Free, among others. As a posthumous song, America, America also became famous.

He participated in the selection for the Eurovision Festival twice. In the first one in 1970 he appeared with the theme That will be my house: he did not get to the final, which Julio Iglesias won with Gwendolyne. The second and most remembered was in the Passport to Dublin program of Valerio Lazarov, where he was in third position. The singer Karina was the winner.

In July 1970 he participated in the III World Olympiad of the Song held in Athens, staying in a fourth place with the song El adios by Augusto Algueró.

In 1970 he participated in the V Song Festival of Rio de Janeiro, with the theme Elizabeth, representing Spain. He was accompanied by the artist Carmen Sevilla as a Spanish jury and by the composer and producer Augusto Algueró as orchestra conductor representing Spain, as well as the Spanish artist Rosa Morena, who, as a participant, represented Andorra. In this contest the Argentine singer Piero won the first prize, playing Pedro Nobody, on behalf of Argentina.

On April 20, 1971, he secretly married María Amparo Martínez Gil. One of his best-known relatives is the famous lawyer and consultant Miguel Mira Juan, whom he did not get to know. He then traveled to Buenos Aires where he performed on channel 9 of that city, in a special program, along with the tango singer Argentino Ledesma. Nino Bravo made a long tour in Latin America that had begun in September 1971 where he made presentations in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Mexico and the happy island of Puerto Rico also traveled to New York and Miami.

On January 24, 1972, his first daughter, María Amparo, was born. Shortly after he released his third album, entitled Un beso y una flor, with which he achieved great success in Spain and Latin America.

In November 1972 he participated in the VII Festival of the Song of Rio de Janeiro, with the song My land as Spanish representative, where he managed to tie in the first place with the American David Clayton-Thomas. The victory was snatched away by the jury president, Joseph Lee Zhito, who, being an American, could not have voted for his own country. Weeks later his fourth album was released, titled Mi tierra, which includes one of his main hits: Libre.

The most remembered anecdote of his tour of South America took place in Bogotá (Colombia), where Nino Bravo was arrested because of a law that obliged all foreign artists to give a free concert at La Media Torta. The problem was that not only was Nino forced to perform, but he had to pay an entire orchestra, which was a significant economic loss. The matter was settled after paying the fine imposed by the Colombian government. Leaving aside the incident, Nino was very successful in South America, both in his television performances and in the galas he offered.

On March 15, 1973 he made his last performance in Valencia, inside the Parador 73 of the well-known Valencian Fallas. There he sang, for the first and only time, the Anthem of the Valencian Community of José Serrano, accompanied by the audience. The Grenadines Gardens of Neptune welcomed shortly after what would be the last performance of the Valencian interpreter.


Curve of the N-III & nbsp ;, Carretera de Valencia at km 95.190, where Nino suffered the accident.

On the morning of Monday, April 16, 1973, Nino Bravo, accompanied by his guitarist and friend José Juesas Francés and the Dúo Humo, left Valencia early for Madrid. A month before, Nino Bravo had become the duo’s representative and the reason for the trip was simply to go to the recording studio so that they “put” the voice for the single. In addition to the sponsorship, Nino also had some minor commitments with his own record house (Polydor-Fonogram); the return was planned for Tuesday, the 17th at night.

He had proposed to make the trip by plane, but finally for various reasons it was decided to do it in the car recently acquired by Nino in Valencia, a BMW 2800 of 1970 with license plate GC-66192. So, they moved away from Valencia by the road N-III between 7:30 and 8:00. They were almost 352 km ahead to the capital of Spain.

Almost after 2 hours, they stopped to refuel and have breakfast in the town of Motilla del Palancar, and before 10:00 they continued on their way. But suddenly a few kilometers away, in the municipality of Villarrubio, on a curve in which a fatal accident had happened that same month, located at PK 95.190 of the highway N-III , (today on the 95-entry Valencia branch, from the A-3 Valencia motorway), the BMW-2800 vehicle driven by the singer went off the road and gave several Bell turns. Remains remain today of the old firm of the 1970s, between the trunk of the highway and the reform of the road in the 1980s, which is the N-III current, with only one entrance lane. The curve was corrected 10 years before the highway was built.

Mojón of kilometer 95 of the National Highway III in 1973 as it passes through the Cuenca town of Villarrubio.

Nino Bravo and the injured were transported in several private vehicles to Tarancón, located 13 kilometers away. In a small hospital of Mercedarian nuns called Santa Emilia they received the first priests, being transferred with the only ambulance that the town has to Madrid, about 80 kilometers away. However, the singer died a few kilometers from the capital of Spain, and entered the corpse at the Francisco Franco Health Center in Madrid (now Hospital Gregorio Marañón).

The causes of death have never been officially revealed, everything points to possible hemoneumothorax and various polytraumatisms suffered in the abdominal region, since although the car had front safety belts (the standard that forced its use is from 1974) it is quite likely that the singer was not wearing it.
