Flamenco is a type of Spanish music and dance that originated in Andalusia in southern Spain. The flamenco, as we know it today, is thought to date back to the 18th century, consisting of a cante, a toque, a baile and a palmas.
In the proceedings of the Spanish Royal Academy, flamenco is associated with the Roma (Gitanos) ethnic group with the fact that they have seriously influenced this genre.
In November 2010, UNESCO declared it an immaterial world treasure.
Otherwise Flamenco originated in the 16th century in Andalusia between Seville, Cadiz and Jerez and was crucial to the existence of Arabs, Jews, Andalusians and most of all Roma.
It came with a mix of Roma music and folk Andalusian music that then had a tradition of singing accompanied by a guitar.
