A genuine Southern Spanish art, FLAMENCO exists in three forms: Cante - the Song; Baile - the Dance and Guitara - Guitar Playing.
Gypsies played an important part in its creation. But also the popular songs and dances of Andalucia considerably influenced early Flamenco. Early Flamenco seems to have been purely vocal, accompanied only by rhythmical clapping of hands 'Toque de Palmas' . Guitar players featuring the dancers increasingly gained popularity.
From 1915 on, Flamenco shows were organized and performed all over the world.
The pictures featured here are from a Flamenco Show held every Wednesday afternoon in the town of Mijas. People come from miles around to enjoy this free show. Though not a true 'Flamenco' it is very entertaining, with wonderful dancing and colorful dress.
