It is an 'aflamencado' folkloric style. Originally, it comes from the countryside. It is a song with verses of eight syllabes each. The 'bambera' is one of the best examples of 'aflamencamiento' ever. It has been known as a flamenco song thanks to la Niña de los Peines who recorded it and made it become popular. Then, la 'bambera' has been interpreted by many singers who sung it in different ways but always keeping the same rythme marked by the first. In fact, Pastora is the one who named it and took the lyrics of these popular songs and who gave them a flamenco taste by adjusting them to the 'compás' of fandangos, and not to the one of the 'soleá' as many people think. Naranjito de Triana and Paco de Lucía are the ones who changed the concept of this song by changing its steps to the steps of 'la soleá por bulería', respecting the melody of Pastora. Nowadays, it is this 'compás' that is used most of the time. Lots of records of songs 'por bamberas' for the last years do not correspond to the interpretation of bambera that is sung in festivals, recitals or 'tablaos'.
