No of Discs:
The folk-art performance of flamenco originated in the Andalusia region of Spain and is composed of song (cante) and dance (baile). The song component, which may include singing, is played on a guitar (toque) that differs from its classical cousin in the use of thinner tops to obtain a more percussive sound. The dance component includes handclaps and the rhythmic stamping of feet. The dance may be a solo performed by a male or female dancer, or in pairs or even groups. Female dancers may also play castanets. In 2010, UNESCO declared flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.This recording of 9 songs features the traditional flamenco form with guitar, singing, the rhythmic stamping of feet, handclaps, and the playing of castanets.
