Title: Flamenco

Flamenco
By Maite Arrebola Muriel

Definition
  • Flamenco is a genuine Spanish art, and to be more
    exact, a genuine Southern Spanish art. It exists
    in three forms Cante, the song, Baile, the
    dance, and Guitarra, guitar playing. Gypsies are
    very often named as its fathers.
  • Spain has been dominated by many diverse
    cultures and civilizations during different
    historical epochs.
  • There were the legendary Tartessos, and seven
    centuries of Muslim occupation hardly could have
    passed without leaving traces.
  • Both of these influenced Flamenco.

History
  • Indian elements
  • Gypsies brought the flamenco style with them from
    Hindustan.
  • Strong resemblance in the ragas, the nuances of
    the Indian dance and similar arm and hand
    movements
  • The Christian reconquest
  • The Catholic Kings captured the last Muslim
    stronghold of Granada in 1492
  • Jews and Muslims had three choices conversion,
    exile or the Inquisition.

  • Moslems and Gypsies head for the hills
  • The remaining Muslims fled the populated towns
    and villages and headed for the hills.
  • Many Gypsies joined the fleeing Muslims and took
    refuge in the mountain regions and caves.
  • The birth of flamenco
  • These cultures had little in common with each
    other but they found themselves united against a
    common enemy.
  • In this underground environment of forced exile,
    the first flamenco forms were created.
  • Flamenco is that collection of songs and dances,
    Gypsy and non-Gypsy, which made it into the 20th
    century

    Century.

    weddings, parties outdoors
  • There are shawls of different sizes, colors and
    materials.
  • The one that goes with the Gypsy dress is called
    mantoncillo (small shawl) because it is smaller.
