FLAMENCO IN GRANADA

Pictures from flamenco performances in some of Granada's most well-known venues. From la Chumbera to the zambras (caves) in Sacromonte, tablao Albaizin in San Cristobal, los veranos flamencos del Corral del Carbón and flamenco summer festivals in the villages of the province as well as many one-night-only shows in the Alhambra and Generalife. Inscribed in 2010 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, Flamenco is one of the great musical forms of our world. It is much more than just a type of folk music. The tradition it embodies is both cultural and musical. There are many unanswered questions about the roots of flamenco, but most would agree flamenco was born out of the interplay of Spanish, Moorish, Jewish and Gypsy people, living together in Andalusia before and after the Reconquest.
