What is flamenco?
Flamenco is an original art of Andalusia, the result of the influence and miscegenation of various cultures such as gypsy, Arabic, Christian and Jewish. It integrates music, singing and dancing and, at present, this artistic expression is appreciated and practiced throughout the world.
Known for its great emotional intensity, for the waste of feelings that artists print in interpretations, flamenco was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010.
As we indicated at the beginning, flamenco has its origin in Andalusia and its birth dates back to the 18th century. There is no unanimity about its denomination, but there is a theory that indicates that flamenco derives from the Andalusian term ‘fellah min gueir ard’, an expression that means something like ‘landless peasant’.
If there is a culture that is directly associated with flamenco, that is the gypsy, perhaps because it has been the one that has contributed most to the development of this art, although it has not been the only one, since it even includes African and Caribbean influences, in addition to the Arabs, Jewish and Christians that we mentioned above.
