Flamenco - Granada

History of flamenco in Granada

The (_do you mean style of? Not all flamenco is cante jondo_) flamenco known as “cante jondo” (translated literally as profound song) has become the form of artistic expression which is the most representative of andalucian folklore. It was born from a mixture of cultures - an expression of regionality.

Granada is without doubt one of the sites of the most artistic expression and “duende” (or feeling for flamenco) derived from this mixture of cultures.

It is not surprising then that is was Granada, capital city of the province bearing the same name, which welcomed in its grounds the first competition of flamenco song in 1922. This is thanks largely to important celebrities of that time such as Federico Garcia Lorca and Manuel de Falla, both Granainos to whom this area is greatly indebted.
