About the show

Tio Borrico, Terremoio, Agujetas Viejo, 1.Soleares basic rhythm 2:22, Agujetas y amigos and more.

Over 10 years ago in Houston, TX, I caught the "Flamenco bug". I was lucky enough to have found a little "Rincon Andaluz" that was pure Flamenco haven. The owner/guitarist/singer was kind enough to make me some tapes for learning and for listening;also got to take some Flamenco lessons with Tibu La Tormenta (may she rest in peace), who was equally firey in her footwork when in pants-role La Farruca and willowy expressive in the languid Sequiriya. I can't find all of the tapes, but do remember driving my beat up little mustard colored Toyota, listening and snapping and tapping to the music everywhere i go. Here's a guide to accents in 12/8 meter. Beat numbers NOT in parenthesis are accented. Sequiriyas are slow,majestic and sorrowful. Buleria starts on beat 12.
Buleria: *12 (1 2) 3 (4 5 6) 7 8 (9) 10 (11)1
Alegria: 1 (2) 3 (4 5 6) 7 8 (9) 10 (11)12
Seguiriyas: 1 (2) 3 (4) 5 (6 7) 8 (9 10) 11 (12)
Soleares: 1 2 3 (4 5) 6 (7) 8 (9) 10 (11) 12
