“You can sing it with a violin, with a flute…!” 

(Manolo Caracol).

We are currently living a time of creative bubbling for Flamenco. Where prestigious artists reinvent themselves, and new generations are willing to participate in the preservation of this ancient art.

Most of the instruments that are recognized as new additions to flamenco have always accompanied this art.

Although until now they have been recognized only and exclusively as classical or ethnic instruments, in the past they were incorporated into Flamenco by artists such as La Niña de los Peines or Manuel de la Torre.

In the “Ópera flamenca” from 1920 to the end of the last century, there is a musicality where instruments such as the piano or the violin already appear, this occurs before the percussion.

There are many new instruments that have been added to the flamenco compasses, bringing freshness, innovation and enrichment to the different palos.

En el año 2015, Diego el Cigala y Bebo Valdés hicieron un regalo al mundo con su mezcla flamenca-latina a través de Lágrimas Negras. Concha Buika es una de las cantantes más singulares de la música actual española en cuanto a flamenco fusión se refiere, su arte mezcla flamenco, soul, el jazz y funk.  Estos son solo dos ejemplos, de la multitud de artistas flamencos que experimentan con nuevos sonidos, dando vida al Flamenco y preservando su identidad.

Like all musical genres, flamenco is nourished by other types of music, collecting sounds and silences, which result in something unique and original. This incorporation of new instruments allows Flamenco to reach a wider and more diverse audience.

In 2015, Diego el Cigala and Bebo Valdés gave a gift to the world with their flamenco-latin mix through Lágrimas Negras. Concha Buika is one of the most singular singers of current Spanish music in terms of flamenco fusion, her art mixes flamenco, soul, jazz and funk. These are just two examples of a multitude of flamenco artists who experiment with new sounds, giving life to Flamenco and preserving its identity.
