SEPHARDIC HERITAGE in FLAMENCO
To understand the influence of Sephardic music in flamenco we begin with the musical contribution of the Jewish community to the territory of the kingdoms of the Iberian peninsula. Historians illuminate and provide clues to better understand this stage of musical history.
Since music has always had a fundamental connection with religious rites and because we have evidence of the existence of Jewish communities from the time of the Phoenicians (1000 BCE), we can say that a characteristic music was beginning to germinate with influences from the contemporary music that flourished and was played throughout the Iberian peninsula centuries ago.
The Jewish communities that were expelled from their lands for religious reasons by Ferdinand and Isabella, “The Catholic Kings,” kept their rites, their customs, their Spanish language and of course their music. It is important to recognize what can be truly be called a labor of love: the cultural custodianship the Sephardic people carried out. It remains alive and well and which, thanks to their perseverance, we can enjoy today.
Sephardic music contains elements of both Arabic and Christian music. It is Arabic in the rhythm and musical instruments, and it is Christian in the words in which this music was sung, the Spanish language.
