Manitas de Plata (born Ricardo Baliardo; 7 August 1921 – 5 November 2014) was a flamenco guitarist born in Southern France. Despite achieving worldwide fame, he was criticized for not following certain rhythmic rules (compás) that are traditional in flamenco. Ricardo Baliardo was born in a gypsy caravan in Sète in southern France. He became famous by playing each year at the -Mer gypsy pilgrimage in Camargue, where he was recorded live by Deben Bhattacharya.
