Francisco Gálvez Gómez was born in Granada in 1883. He was known as El Jilguero de Granada (the goldfinch of Granada), because in 1922 he won 500 pesetas (just over €3 euros) in a famous contest. He was very popular in Granada during his life, so much so that González Anaya based a character in his novel La oración de la tarde on him. He is an important part of flamenco history because he created the fandango abandolao flamenco style, which is named after him (Fandango de Frasquito, Yerbabuena). He died in Granada in 1944.
