Did you know?
Up until 1983, most musicians outside of Cádiz never played tanguillos in performances––they considered it a regional folkloric style that didn’t belong on flamenco stages. This all changed when Paco de Lucía, Camarón de la Isla, and Tomatito released “Romance de la Luna,” which approached the palo differently rhythmically, inspiring others to do the same. This single song caused a major shift in the history of tanguillos.
Juan Parrilla shared this gem in one of our Palos classes–sign up below to learn more about all of the musical styles in flamenco!
