Characteristics

Flamenco differs from all other styles of music, and even though its spontaneity and emotional depth has similarities with jazz, or even the early blues, which was also the music of outcasts, it is the words and the driving rhythms that are the most important part. Harmonies and melodies are not the principal element in flamenco like in western music, where we tend to listen first to the tune, and after the rhythm and words, and the rhythms of flamenco also differ considerably to those of modern music.
