Flamenco music comes from the soul, and there are many varieties of flamenco, from the cante jondo (the Deep Song) to bulerias (about thirty different varieties in all) Some could tear your soul to shreds; others could bring you ecstatic ebullience. The ideal in flamenco is called "duende" (demon or elf), which refers to a state of emotional involvement, of group communication at a deeper level and a feeling of sympathy, between musicians, dancers and listeners.
Flamenco is about two hundred years old and it is known worldwide as a Spanish folklore music. The four basic types of flamenco are: the "tonas" which are the oldest, the "soleá", the dramatic "seguiriya", and the "tangos".
|Flamenco since its origins has been
deeply rooted in the talent and experiences of the
gypsies from all over Andalucia mainly, and to a lesser
extent from other areas of the Iberian peninsula. The
lyrics of flamenco treat any imaginable theme, from up to
date stories, to politics, to love, to history, to humor,
and so on.
