Enjoy Spain’s authentic flavors and a live Flamenco Show!
Our Gala Dinner includes a four-course Prix-Fixed menu featuring the unique Cochinillo a la leña, leg of lamb, fresh fish from the Cantabric (Northern Spain), paella, and more.
Our live show features four artists on stage performing popular Spanish rhythms like rumba, flamenco, sevillanas, and more!
Others attribute the creation of this music to gypsies, a people from India who up until recently were
believed to be Egyptians and scattered throughout Europe due to their nomadic condition.
They entered Spain at the beginning of the XV century, in search of climates, warmer than those they had found on
the continent. The different musical legacies that the relatives from Andalucia left in the South of Spain
can not be forgotten, where psalmodic melodies and the Jewish musical system, were in effect, the Ionic and Phrygian
methods inspired in the Byzantine chants, the old Hindu musical system, the Muslim chants and popular Mozarabic chants,
from where the 'jarchas' and the 'zambras' probably came from.
Without passing judgement on which theory is stronger -there are others but with less acceptance-
what can be assured is that, flamenco song was born of the people, it has obvious folk music roots and on passing through
the throats of specific creators has become an indisputable art.
Another of the aspects that makes this art a true mystery radicates in defining the exact origins of the term 'flamenco'. There are multiple theories about the genesis of this word, although perhaps the widest is that defended by Blas Infante in his book "Orígenes de lo flamenco". According to the father of the autonomy of the region of Andalucia, the word "flamenco" was derived from the Arabic term "Felah-Mengus", which together mean "wandering country person".
