The lives of López and Gonzalez converged in 2016 when they met at a gig to see artists they knew. Talk led to talk to exchanging phone numbers, to becoming a couple. A year later, they entered the Conservatorio Superior de Música Rafael Orozco de Cordóba, the first city in Spain to offer a degree in flamenco. López, 26, is the only person from Guadalajara and Castille-La Mancha with a Grado en Cante Flamenco degree. González is probably the only one or one of the few American passport holders with a degree in flamenco guitar.
