flamenco dancing
Flamenco dancing
  • Flamenco is the traditional song and dance of the Gypsies (flamencos) of Andalusia.  
  • Its history can be traced over several centuries from Gypsy, Moorish, Andalucian, and other roots.  
  • Its evolution is a source of great debate with no accepted explanation of how flamenco resulted from the cultural influences of such diverse regions as North Africa, Southern Europe and the Near and Far East.  
  • Flamenco has never been more popular in Spain and abroad than it is today with a new generation of new flamenco performers in the post-Franco era who have broadened flamenco's appeal to an international audience.
