The Jaleo group was formed about 12 years ago, with its origins in the national dance workshop. In addition to their preparations are dance workshops with Spanish dancers who have come to our country to present their shows .
Flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and jaleo, which refers to the vocalizations and rhythmic sounds of palmas (handclapping) and pitos (finger snapping) that encourage performers to excel.
First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre is thought to have grown out of Andalusian music and dance styles. Flamenco is often associated with the gitanos (Romani people of Spain) and a number of famous flamenco artists are of this ethnicity.
