    When you hear or read the word ‘Spain’, what comes first to your head? Well, for a great many people Spain means bullfights, toreadors, Don Quixote and the pas­sionate, fiery rhythms of flamenco. For Spanish people flamenco is part of the culture of Andalusia, not of Spain in general. Gypsy music, traditional Andalusian folk songs and Arab melodies from Spain’s Moorish past have all played a part in creating this unique sound. Although there are many theories promising to explain the meaning of the word flamenco, there is not enough evidence to prove them. One theory is that the Spanish word flamenco could have been a derivative of the Spanish word flama, meaning "fire" or "flame". Another commonly accepted version translates flamenco as Spanish for the Flemish soldiers. These soldiers were renowned for their self-confidence and flamboyant pride, all qualities that reflect the gypsy character. Early flamenco was purely Cante Flamenco, a vocal accompanied only by rhythmic clapping of hands.  After a time, the dancing movements and the guitar became other core com­ponents. Flamenco guitar was quite similar to a usual guitar except for the fact that materials for it were chosen carefully to enhance volume and sound quality. Castanets became other musical instruments used in Flamenco performances. They produced clicking and rattling noises that added to the overall sound. So this tripartite - the sound of the guitar, the improvisa­tion of the singer and the dramatic movements of the dancers - combined together  makes an unforgettable show. The major movements involved in Flamenco dance are those of the arms and feet. The arms have to be moved gracefully and calmly. On the other hand, the movements of feet involve high intensity creating a wonderful combination of the lightly moving arms and the powerful movements of the feet. Dressing is another important component of any Flamenco dance. According to tradition, women wear red, black or deep blue dresses while men wear tuxedo shirts of black or red colour with dark bottoms. However, modern day dancers often deviate from this pattern and many other colours can also be observed in Flamenco dance performances nowadays. Flamenco doesn’t need a stage. People dance it when they have something to celebrate, wherever they are - at home, in a cafe, in the street... Surprisingly enough, there is no standard Flamenco dance! There are certain patterns of rhythms the dancer must follow, but most of the performance depends on the mood and the music available. Furthermore, innovation from the dancer’s side is an essential part of Flamenco dance as it is meant to depict passion and zest of the performer that's why the dance requires skill and understanding. Since Flamenco show became a must for every tourist vis­iting Spain, its passion has gone, it has been often imitated and stereotyped, and true flamenco has become something rare and difficult to come by. Nevertheless in the 1980s flamenco reinvented itself and a new style. New Flamenco was created by a younger generation of flamenco artists, who used not only traditional music, but jazz, pop and South American melodies. One of the artists who helped to revive flamen­co is Joaquin Cortes, the Spanish icon and the most popular flamen­co dancer. Nowadays flamenco is popular all over the world and in 2010 UNESCO declared it one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
