The city of Granada has always had a strong and deep connection with art and culture.
The city of Granada has always had a solid and strong relationship with art and culture, being a municipality where various famous personalities have excelled, both in Spain and around the world. If one of these artistic branches has stood out above the others in this city, it has undoubtedly been flamenco, being one of the prime cradles of this artistic expression, where artists like Estrella Morente and Antonio Carmona were born.
This popular musical culture, originating from the marginalized gypsy community that was forced to live outside the city walls in the Sacromonte mountains, where they built cave houses, gave rise to the origin of flamenco in Granada, and more specifically the Zambra, a “flamenco dialect” of the mentioned neighborhood, which has left its mark with numerous personalities like Estrella Morente and Antonio Carmona.
