The best flamenco dancing

Spanish music is often considered abroad to be synonymous with flamenco dancing, a West Andalusian musical genre, which, contrary to popular belief, is not widespread outside that region. Flamenco is actually a style of music and dance which is native to several regions of southern Spain.

Along with its Spanish origins, Gypsy, Byzantine, Serphardic, and Moorish elements have often been cited as influences in the development of flamenco. It has frequently been asserted that these influences coalesced near the end of the reconquista, in the 15th century. The origins of the word flamenco are unclear. It was not recorded until the late 18th century.

Flamenco is popularly depicted as being the music of Andalusia Gitanos (gypsies) but historically its roots are in mainstream Andalucía society, in the latter half of the 18th century. Other regions, notably Extremadura and Murcia, have also contributed to the development of flamenco, and many flamenco artists have been born outside the gitano community. Latin and especially Cuban influences have also contributed, as evidenced in the flamenco dancing.

On November 16, 2010,UNESCO declared Flamenco one of the Masterpices of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
