Map of Andalucía, Geography North Sierra Morena East Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Gador South Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, Costa de Sol, Costa de Luz Andalucia became a region when Rome colonized the area.

Andalucia is known for growing cereal and olive crops
brought in by the Romans

One of the longest occupied regions
Moorish Traditions The Gypsies 1499-King Ferdinand and Isabel exiled the Gypsies.
The gypsies were forced to abandon their wandering and settle in a region in which they were to be governed.
If the gypsies failed to leave they were persecuted.

The Gyspies then settled in Andalucia.

To survive the gyspies had to adapt to their surroundings. It was very hard to give up their ways of living. Luckily, one thing that they did not have to give up was their music. With the Moorish culture that was already in Andalucia, the Gypsies were able to weld their music in with theirs which began the basis for the Flamenco. Tripartite Art El cante (the song)

El baile (the dance)

La guitarra (the guitar) El cante-The Song Known for the poetic verses of the Gypsies

Songs have been passed down orally

The song is a story. It does not give a solution or ask for a call of action. The singer tells you what he wants to tell you.

Song contains Coplas: 3-5 lines
There is no set pattern as to how the song is sung and there is often no ending rhymes.

Fragmented and inconclusive

Emphasis is placed on the singers vocal ability to project the imagery of the song
