Andalusia was probably the main route of transmission of a number of Near-Eastern musical instruments used in classical music ; the rebel (ancestor of violin) from the rehab, the guitar from Qatar and Baker from Nazareth. Further, terms fell into disuse in Europe; due from although, Alaska from album, nail from Altair, excreta from al-shabbaba (flute), atonal (bass drum) from Altaba, animal from al-tinbal, the Balkan, sonatas DE afar from sunup al-sufr, the conical bore wind instruments, the Elam from the salami or fistula (flute or musical pipe), the Shaw and Juliana from the reed instruments AMR and alumna, the gait from the Haiti, racket from Iraq or Iraqi, Gage (German for a violin) from fiche and the theory from the Arab.
Trend acknowledges that the troubadours derived their sense of form and the subject of their poetry from Andalusia. The hypothesis that the troubadour tradition was created, more or less, by William after his experience of Moorish arts while fighting with the Reconquista in Spain was also championed by Ramón Menéndez Tidal in the early twentieth-century, but its origins go back to the Cinquecento and Grammarian Barrier (died 1575) and Juan Andrés (died 1822).
Improvised flamenco songs of ancient Andalusian origin are called caste condo, and are characterized by a reduced tonal ambiance, a strict rhythm, baroque ornamentation and repetition of notes. The guitar is a vital instrument to flamenco; it marks the measure of a song, and is frequently used in expressive solos during which the guitarist will improvise short variations called falsetto.
Ramón Montoya was the most influential early guitarist, known for having solidified the guitar as a solo instrument. His successors included Anglo Singular and Pace de Lucía.
The golden age of flamenco is said to be 1869 to 1910, later becoming more and more popularized internationally and influenced by South American music, especially the tango. Musicians from the golden age performed at bars called café cant antes, such as Café de Chinitas in Málaga, which was made famous by the poetry of García Lorna.
Other musicians of the early 20th century include Anglo Cara col, who walked from Jerez to participate in a caste condo competition, which he won. Though the golden age had long since passed, the 1950s saw flamenco achieving increased respectability in Spain.
Hispano, a Spanish record label, released Apologia del Caste Flamenco in 1956; the recording's collection of most all the greatest flamenco singers was very popular. In 1956, the first national caste condo competition was held in Córdoba, followed by a Chair of Flamenco logy being established at Jerez in 1958.
In the 1970s and 80s, salsa, blues, rumba and other influences were added to flamenco, along with music from India. Trend (1965), Music of Spanish History to 1600 (New York: Krause Reprint) ^ Begin, Meg.

By Rick StevesReligious processions fill the nighttime streets of Córdoba during its Festival of the Crosses. (photo: TBD)These two children in Córdoba are preparing to carry a red-cross float during the city's Festival of the Crosses.
I discovered this when I was filming an episode of my public television show in one of my favorite restaurants in Córdoba. The meal was made-to-order for TV: a montage of Spanish delights from the roasted almonds and spicy green olives that hit the table automatically, to the local Palmore (like a super thick, bright orange gazpacho), boquerones (anchovies), fried eggplant, and “Arab Salad” with cod and delicate orange sections.
Our portion was glistening with taste; eating it was the culinary equivalent of pinning a boutonniere onto a tux. Feeling underdressed for the filming, I called a taxi and zipped back to the hotel between courses.
One minute I was thrilled to be in the restaurant filming all that wonderful food; the next I was amazed we were missing parties in the squares and an exotic religious procession in the streets. Trumpets blare a fanfare, children carry a float, and candles jostle in unison as the marchers glide in the dark of the night.
Locals enthusiastically use this special day on the church calendar as a springboard for a community party. The last of the revelers gathered around the makeshift bar which seemed to provide physical support for those determined to carry on.
Just as Austria is a hair-trigger waltzing society, Andalusia is just waiting for the simplest excuse to put castanets into motion and dance. On that little plaza in Córdoba, I exhorted the exhausted gang to dance around their tired carnation cross.

On February 2013 I made a trip to Morocco, together with Mohamed Sold, to attend an Andalusian music festival in Fez and to meet with the musician and musicologist Amino Camacho in Return. The Andalusian classical music is very much alive in the Maghreb and its origins go back to the times of Landaus.
The cities of Fez and Return are two major centers for the Moroccan Andalusian music (known there as Music Alkali). Andalusian music is a classical tradition that has been maintained orally for hundreds of years and that has a well-defined repertoire and set of formalism.
Each NAWSA is on a tab' (which is similar to the concepts of madam or mode) and is structured as a sequence of five maze (plural or Milan), each one on a particular rhythmic pattern. The orchestras I heard included voice soloists, out, rehab, Barbour, tar, QAnon, Khamenei (violin and viola), cello, piano, and all the players also sang (photo of some instruments).
The percussion (Barbour and Africa) has a supporting role, thus it is present all the time. He has a good collection of books and recordings of Andalusian music and thus he will be a great source of information for our research.
Today, considered an Israeli musical and cultural icon, the orchestra tours extensively in Israel, Europe, and the US. The orchestra is composed of around 30 musicians and lyricists with family origins from Tunisia, Morocco, and Russia.
The orchestra’s artistic director and head conductor is Tom Cohen, who is also an accomplished mandolin player. The liturgical songs of Andalusia began hundreds of years ago in a time when Muslims and Jews wrote words for the same Andalusian melodies, in Arabic and Hebrew.
Over the years, these songs went on to form the core of the magnificent liturgical tradition of Moroccan Judaism and Hebraic communities in general. Most of the musicians perform on classical western instruments; violin, viola, cello, contrabass, and oboe, using sheet music.
These are accompanied by a traditional ensemble of classic eastern instruments; out (pear shaped string instrument), kamnche, (spiked fiddle or knee violin), QAnon (zither), Na (end blown flute), Barbuda, (goblet shaped hand drum), and tar (lute).
