Flamenco is the most famous style of dance and music in Spain. Flamenco first originated in Andalusia, southern Spain, in the 18th Century. It consists of three parts:
singing, playing the guitar and dancing. Flamenco music has different styles and forms named 'palos' where each one has a unique combination of rhythm, harmony, pulse, and lyrics.
Flamenco expanded in Spain from 1869 to the Golden Age where flamenco cantantes (singers) would perform in cafes that helped in the spread of flamenco in the community.
Silverio Franconetti was one of the most famous flamenco singers to sing all styles of flamenco music.
