[Homework]2012-11-30 风情南西班牙 The Moorish South —18

Moorish style remained fashionable in Christian Spain. So much so that if you were a craftsman, you were given special treatment. But life for other Moors was getting a lot harder. Most fled to the extremes south of Spain while last bastion(*) of Moorish might climb(*) on to power. Those who remained were forced to convert or go underground where they mixed with other outcast cultures like the Jews and the Gipsies.

These different groups of outsiders, Moors, Jews, Gipsies, came together in * parts of town like Triana in Seville. Here their different musical traditions fused together to create a style that would eventually re-surface, so it's said as flamenco.


Nobody knows for sure which parts of flamenco come from the Moors, though there are many theories. They brought the guitar to Spain, destined to become the nation's favourite musical instrument. And the distinct dance style of flamenco in which dramatic palm and hand movements are favoured over the legs is similar to Moorish dancing, which forbade(*) women from drawing attention to their legs. And the singing style is similar to the wailing Arabic style. Even the word flamenco itself comes from an Arab word, fela-mengu, meaning fugitive peasant.
