De Plata first attracted notice playing to pilgrims at the annual -Mer Gipsy gatherings in the Camargue, and at Gipsy weddings in the La Roquette district of Arles, often accompanying his cousin, the singer José Reyes. Discovered somewhat late in life in 1961 by the Gipsy artist Lucien Clergue, he began recording albums.

When the guitarist Manitas de Plata, who has died aged 93, became an international star in the 1960s, his was the name most widely associated with flamenco. At the time, music was classified as either popular or classical: the term world music had not been coined and the wizardry of the Gypsy from the south of France was regarded as both high culture and light entertainment. In his sleeve notes for De Plata’s debut album in 1965, the US journalist Vincent Sheean wrote that the musician had learned from the instrument everything it has to teac. e lives in his music as the fish lives in the sea. The path to worldwide acclaim was not straightforward.
