Flamenco is the musical product of the special mixing that occurred for many centuries in Andalusia between Muslims, Gypsies, Jews, West African slaves and Castilians. It is a jewel created through the history, and is classified as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.
More than just music it’s an artform that comes from the heart. If you see a good live flamenco show, you’ll feel chills… and you’ll understand the mysterious power known as “duende”.
If you want to enjoy the magic of flamenco in Granada, here you have a couple of options:
María La Canastera
La “Zambra” María La Canastera, is located in the picturesque neighborhood of Sacromonte and today, 50 years after it first opened its doors, is one of the main attractions in Granad when it comes to Flamenco performances. Here, every night the songs and dances of Sacromonte come alive, masterfully offered by the descendants of María; they are in charge of maintaining the tradition she left behind.
Jardines de Zoraya
The “tablao” Jardines de Zoraya is an old carmen (typical Granadian house) refurbished as a restaurant, with an Andalusian patio where you can have dinner or a drink surrounded by lemon and orange trees. The inside is a beautiful lounge where you can enjoy the live entertainment every night.
