Flamenco is a Spanish genre of music and dance which originated in Andalucia in the XVII century, which has as its foundation Andalucian music and dance and, in whose creation and evolution, ethnic Gypsies from Andalucian played an essential part. The cante(singing), toque(guitar playing) and the dance are the principal facets of Flamenco.
In recent years the popularity of flamenco in Latin America is such that in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama and El Salvador several ensembles and flamenco academies have sprung up. In Japan flamenco is so popular that there are more academies there than in Spain. On November 16, 2010, UNESCO declared Flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance.
