Flamenco singing styles

Zambra

The place and the show itself, performed in the Sacramonte quarter, usually in caves, are denominated zambra. The zambra is a dance integrated by three others: the alboreá, cachuca and the mosca, that symbolise different moments in a gypsy wedding. It is acompanied by monotone song and guitar playing, which shows that it is a style obviously rooted in primitive music. The performance shows a kind of racial ritual in which the dancers get more and more temperamental as if having fever, possesed while dancing.
