An expert explains and analyzes the beloved art form An iconic symbol of Spain, flamenco has become a global phenomenon. Peter Manuel offers English-language readers a rare portrait of the musics history, styles, and cultural impact. Beginning with flamencos Moorish and Roma influences, Manuel follows the musics evolution through its consolidation in the mid-1800s and on to the vibrant contemporary scene. An investigation of flamencos major song-types looks at rhythm and comps, guitar technique, and many other aspects of the music while Manuels description and analysis of the repertoire range from soleares and buleras to tangos. His overview of contemporary flamenco culture provides insight into issues that surround the music, including globalization, gender dynamics, notions of ownership, and the ongoing debates on purity versus innovation and the relative roles played by Gitanos and non-Gitanos. Multifaceted and entertaining, Flamenco Music is an in-depth study of the indelible art form that inspires enthusiasts and practitioners around the world.

Comprehensive, rigorous, and accessible--qualities that dont always coincide. This book tackles flamenco history, structure, and culture in a way that is professional and compassionate. Literature on flamenco often undiscerningly presents a jumble of facts, hypothesis, suppositions, stories, and legends; this work masterfully untangles these and even-handedly dissects several polemics. One of the most important contributions to the field.--John Moore, flamenco guitarist
