Summary This book provides an in-depth ethnographic investigation of the greatly underestimated and underappreciated contributions of women singers, the "cantaoras," to the creation, transmission and innovation in flamenco song. Loren Chuse shows how flamenco is a complex of cultural practices at once musical, physical, verbal and social, involving the expression and negotiation of complex multi-layered identities, including notions of Andalusian, regional, gypsy and gender identity.
Subject Flamenco music -- History and criticism.
Women flamenco musicians.
