Art of Flamenco

Even though traditionally regarded as flamenco part of the general Spanish culture, flamenco originated during the second half of the 19th century in the area roughly burned with the region of Andalusia. Over time, in which all Spanish regions are ultimately part of the development.

Flamenco is an important factor in the history of the Iberian Peninsula, formed over the centuries from a deeply influential interplay between Iberian, Phoenician, Celtic, Gothic, Byzantine, Islamic (Moorish), Sephardic, Catholic Christian, and (since 1415) gypsy cultures found in Andalusia. In this complex set of cultures that influence each other, the native (Andalusian).

Perhaps the direct origins of flamenco were not discovered until the mid-20th century, as there were numerous Spaniards who studied and created flamenco art, without any notable exceptions.

I practiced the Art of Flamenco in the early nineties with great passion. Last week, flamenco dancer Romina Toroz performed her powerful flamenco dance at CafĂ© Duende Amsterdam, accompanied by cantaores Yota Baron and guitarist Yorgos Valiris, they studied together in the Flamenco Dance School in Spain and are from Greece origin.
