Zambra

Zambra Flamenco in the Sacramonte Caves Above Granada, Spain

In the caves of Sacramonte, on the hillsides above Granada, a variation of flamenco has developed over the centuries. Zambra, in which the flamenco performer both dances and sings, is unique to the Roma culture in the provinces of Granada and Almeria in Andalusia, Spain. Zambra is said to have Moorish origins. I a darkened, narrow cave, with the drums and guitars echoing the rapid stomping of the dancers feet, Zambra is mesmerizing.
