Traditional romances (ballads) serve us as a clear example of how flamenco has evolved over time. These romances have a long tradition in Andalusia, initially as a popular form of oral artistic expression, and have always occupied a very special place in flamenco singing. From the Middle Ages to the 21st century, romances have traveled to us through time, faithfully preserved in the songs of flamenco.

Recital: Romances in the style of El Negro (“About a nun”), Alonso el del Cepillo (“Olive pickers”), El Chozas (“Zaide and Celinda”), Luis de Córdoba (romances from his childhood); Antonio Mairena (“They’ve told us about great wars…”), María La Perrata (“The Moorish king had a son”), and Pepe Marchena (“To the rosemary flower”).

Augustín Gómez, commentator
Luis de Córdoba, singer
Manuel Silveria, guitar

Sponsored by Instituto Cervantes (Boston), Universidad de Corboda, and Voces Hispanicas/Hispanic Voices, an initiative of the Department of Romance Studies at Boston University, made possible by the generosity of Santander Universities Global Division.
