Spanish Music

Spain is located in southwestern Europe, bordering the Bay of Biscay, Mediterranean Sea, North Atlantic Ocean, and Pyrenees Mountains, southwest of France.

Spain has a rich history and varied folk music traditions. The two best known musical genres from Spain are Flamenco and Celtic music, but Spain has many other musical styles and dances throughout its mainland and island regions.

Flamenco was born in Andalusia and is also very popular in Extremadura and Murcia. Spain’s capital Madrid has now one of the largest and best Flamenco scenes in the country in terms of nightclubs, concerts and festivals.

Celtic music is primarily found in northwestern Spain, in Galicia and Asturias, although Celtic music acts can be found throughout he rest of the country.

Spanish musical genres include chotis, ensalada, fandango, farruca, flamenco, jota, muñeira, sardana, sevillanas, verdiales.
