Andalusia in Spain is the Heartland of Flamenco, but Flamenco Dance was declared “Intangible Cultural of Humanity” in 2010 by UNESCO. Cante is the vocal expression of flamenco, sung by men and women, preferably seated, with no backing singers. The gamut of feelings and states of mind – grief, joy, tragedy, rejoicing and fear – can be expressed through sincere, expressive lyrics characterized by brevity and simplicity. Flamenco Baile is a dance of passion, courtship, expressing a wide range of situations, ranging from sadness to joy.
