Aflamencados: Flamenco Singing

Rocío Márquez, voice and Alfredo Lagos, flamenco guitar

"Pure" flamenco? It is difficult to apply this description to music that arises from a crossroads of influences. "Classical" flamenco? Perhaps this term is more useful in referring to this style of music, which emerged during the eighteenth century and reached its peak during the twentieth century. Rocío Márquez and Alfredo Lagos perform characteristic flamenco palos. Seguiriyas, fandangos, cantiñas of Cadiz and cantos de ida y vuelta (songs that have gone back and forth) feature in this recital.
