The Flamenco Dance

Spain is undoubtedly a country of diversified culture and tradition. It is the rich Spanish cultural heritage that bore the Flamenco dance. The Flamenco is an exceptionally communicative dance whose birth place is traceable to Andalucía, South Spain. Studies regarding the origin of the Flamenco Dance have been partially successful in tracing the dance to the Arab and Hispanic civilisations. Towards the closing stages of the Moorish dominion, the word ‘fellahmengu’ was brought into play to refer to the Islam faithful in Andalusia. Initially, the Flamenco dance was not officiated and was performed in clandestine ritual celebrations by the gypsies.

The Flamenco Dance gained popularity from the eighteenth century when scores of dance troops across Spain took time to professionalize it. Consequently, the dance has since been performed at a number of entertainment spots in the country and numerous additions have been incorporated to the original form of the dance and this has been of great significance in seeing the betterment of this practice.

Palos, rather assorted forms of musical features have been introduced to the dance over the years. These forms are distinguished with respect to the configuration of verses, progression in chords, their rhythmic prototype as well as their place of origin.

The Flamenco is a blending of dance processions and legendary folk mantras accompanied by music instruments from the Mozarabic region. The instruments include Casanet finger cymbals and tambourines and are an essential element of the dance. The flamenco dance is inspired by African and Moroccan cultural backgrounds. Each performance puts across messages that communicate intimate emotions of the human race. The audience enjoys the rhythm of the Flamenco guitar.

The Flamenco dance, Spanish mantra and guitars constitute the Flamenco music genre. Both genders are viable to participate in the Flamenco dance. The masculine dancers are referred to as the ‘Bailaor’ whilst their female counterparts are known as ‘Bailaora’.
