SPAIN’S CLASSICS 7 PORTUGAL – 14
DAYS, DEPARTING OCTOBER 17, 2018.

"El cante," "el baile," and "la
guitarra." Combine the three into one romantic tour de force, and you have
the essence of the flamenco…the song, the dance and the guitar. The flamenco's
roots began in southern Spain as a 17th-century art form created by Andalusian
gypsies. Similar to the blues that originated in America's Deep South, the
"cante," or song, was a way for the gypsies to express their sorrow
and repression. They sang their lyrics in the dark mines where they worked,
using verse to help ease each other's personal grief. As the 18th century
approached, the gypsies gained more legal rights and many were able to purchase
musical instruments. Soon the "guitarra," or guitar, was added to
their repertoire. The "baile," or dance, quickly followed — and like
any great art form, the flamenco took off. Soon performances in more mainstream
venues like local cafés and dance halls combined with old-fashioned
commercialism to make the flamenco the national dance of Spain.
