Song of the Mine Flamenco

  • Cartagenera, it belongs to the East songs, flamenco styles of the eastern provinces, Almeria and Murcia, songs of the mine and free metric system. Born in Taranta, with some inflections of the "malagueña", the "cartagenera" is between these both folk songs. Generally made up of four octosyllable verses.
    Tarantas, they belong to the East songs, flamenco styles of the eastern provinces, Almeria and Murcia, songs of teh mine and following a free metric system. The main eastern style is, witout any doubt, the "taranta". Long, rough and manly song, with the only influence of the fandango. The taranta is the usual miner song. Born in the most inhospitable miner basin, the taranta reflects in its tortured verses the superhuman effort, the terrible tiredness of the first country persons.
    Very romantic song, very expressive. The guitar is used like the tone and rhythm support.
