These songs were at first sung by everyday people from every walk of life; a blacksmith singing to the rhythm of his hammer, pouring out his heart about the persecution of the gypsies, or a lament, a passionate expression of grief, and at gypsy weddings, where a song sung to the bride and groom would drive people into fits of wild and frenzied dancing and singing, tearing off their shirts as if to release their pent-up emotions. The lyrics are the driving force of flamenco, and the singer’s interpretation of the song will differ depending on his mood.
It is believed that these palms originate from different areas of Andalusia, each town or village having their own particular version of the song. Málaga’s flamenco is based around the fandangos, which are derived from the ancient verbiages, which are the folk songs from the villages that surround the city.
Seville is famed for its sole ares, signorinas, which are the very heart of gypsy caste, and the martinets which are thought to have originated from the blacksmiths of Trina. Jerez de la Frontera is the home of the Bulgaria, whereas Cádiz is renowned for its light breezy styles like the Algeria and tangos.
The Cameras which include the Alberta, are songs sung at different stages of the gypsy wedding. Andalusian Classical music was developed in Spain in the region and province of that name.
It is primarily characterized by three major dance types: the fandango, the Managua, and the polo. The fandango is thought to be of South American origin and is written in triple time with a continuous increase in speed.

Cameron de la Islam, born José Monte Cruz to a Romany family in Cadiz, was one of flamenco's greatest cantors (singers) up until his death in 1992. Tomato, born José Fernández Torres in Almería, was a student of Pace de Lucía's and grew to become a wildly popular flamenco artist (and later, pioneered the flamenco-jazz fusion for which he is now better known).
Pace Peña, a native of Córdoba, is largely responsible for popularizing the flamenco guitar outside of Spain. Born in Seville to a Romany family that produced many generations of flamenco cantors and failures (dancers), as well as matadors (bullfighters), he lived a life of scandal and passion, and though he was not necessarily the strongest singer in a technical sense and was known for having some uneven performances, he was filled with more dense than most other singers have in their little finger.

Still, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't at least give a try to some recordings of the great flamenco masters of the early 20th century, starting with La Niña de Los Panes, born Pastor Avon Cruz in Seville in 1890. Because of the era in which she did most of her recording, she never made any full-length LPs, and thus her catalog of single songs are regularly released and re-released in various collections.
Truthfully, almost any of these collections is as good of a starting place as any other, but this one will fit the bill nicely, and seems to be easy enough to find. Reggaeton and Bahamas are totally my guilty pleasures, but there are those songs that stick around for decades and even centuries.
