Flamenco

by John Hageter

Significance of the music

It has been regarded as an emotional expression for the burdened and poor passed down generations by tradition.

It is most commonly listened to by the Andalusians

Origins

Came about after the intermingling between gypsies, moors, Jews, and indigenous Andalusians. After these different communities met up, they made hybrid versions of their music which over the years became to be flamenco.

Characteristics

The music involves singing and dancing with a rhythmic beat usually accompanied by hand claps. The music has its own guitar dedicated to it which is a derivative to the modern classical guitar.
