The deep wail of a singer breaks the silence. Suddenly, the Spanish guitar begins to play, and a dancer stamps her feet on the tablao, enrapturing the audience.
Flamenco is a complex art form that combines poetry, music, and dancing. Although its origins are obscure, it is believed to have emerged in Andalusia, in southern Spain, from the mixing of Moorish, Jewish, Gipsy, and Andalusian cultures.
