flamenca are still uncertain, though
it is highly probable that flamenca
singing and dancing originated in
Andalucia around the 15th century,
during the Gypsies' encounter with
the inhabitants of southern Spain
who, "when they arrived in the region
of Andalucia, were bearing with
them a culture that was a mixture of
Arabic-Egyptian, Jewish and Indian
influences." $30-$50. (313) 887-8501;
