party rumbas 

hey, next month I'll be playing at my prom with a friend singing (he's spanish native) an we want to play some rumbas or maybe tangos. Do you know some easy singing/listening rumbas? NO rumba flamencas, he's not El Pele
I thought of Ranchada de los Paraguayos from Andres Calamaro and Canción de Laura from Vicente's last album. but i need some more

thanks a lot!

Ha! Cool!

Check out the gipsy kings, jose Reyes, Los Reyes, los Hermanos Balliardo, Peret.
A youtube search for the Camarque or les Saintes Maries de la mer will get nice ideas.
For instance Manolo, very nice guy by the way!

Bamboleo by the Gipsy Kings is the first thing that comes to mind.

Ketama songs often have more involved and jazzy harmonies than most party rumbas. No Estamos Lokos is fun and not too hard at all. PM me if you need help with any of the chords.

RE: party rumbas (in reply to athrane77



one of my favorites "the seven bandits"

its a classic in spain so there are several videos of people playing this where you can see their chord positions



one of the most famous tangos in flamenco history, muy festero..granted ists camaron, but the vocals could be adjusted on that and you dont have to play paco's falsetas either

Hmmmm.... Vengo de Borrachera is fun and probably not too hard to play, I think for the most part it's typical rumba chords (Andaluz cadence and so forth).



I always liked Verde, the original is by the great Manzanita



but there are a million cover versions on YouTube, and the chords are all over the net anyway.

I think the Farucca from:

Sólo Compás Farruca - Quinta Parte (Segunda Letra - Escobillas)

Is really nice for something like that. The melody has been in my head so many times. You can check it out on Spotify!

EL grande Manzanita another flamenco who departed too early. He wrote the 7 Bandits also although Zingaro's version is the famous one. Great choice

I love the movie VENGO! I love that a Sufi group is in it, also. Am thinking of buying the soundtrack.

Love the Movie VENGO from which this clip originated. With the Sufi group in the VENGO movie, but not in this particular clip, VENGO has become one of my favorite movies. What actually drew me to Flamenco music is that I wanted something with an Arabic influence in music, rather than trying to play pure Arabic music. Flamenco is it, because of the Moorish influence. (Just goes to show Flamenco purists that Flamenco is not a pure form either. Everything came from something else. )

In addition to Flamenco, I enjoy listening to what are called "nasheeds" in Islam. Some of the nasheed songs are 1400 years old. Some styles rely on voice-only, and some say it is okay to use musical instruments as long as they are purely acoustic with no electric. I can see origins of Flamenco, perhaps very much in the distant past, of Qu'ran recitation. A good "Quri" can bring chills to your bones and make you cry, just as much as a good flamenco cante.

Most scholars and aficionados trace the origins of flamenco to three primary influences: The Moorish out of North Africa during their long rule in Al Andalus; the Jewish, which had a long history in Spain; and the Gypsy (Gitano), which originated in India and a branch of which ended up in Al Andalus as well. I understand your comment about Qur'an recitation, having spent many years working and living in Islamic countries, but if it had any influence at all, it would have been via the amalgamation of the Islamic influence and its conduit via North Africa to Al-Andalus. I doubt that the origin of flamenco would ever be considered to be the "Azan" (the call to prayer) as recited by the Muezzin. It is indeed a haunting call, but hardly the origin of flamenco.

Cheers,

Bill

Oh, no. Certainly not THE influence, but yet, as you said an amalgamation. IN the first video, here is a good example of Flamenco that illustrates my point. In the second video is something from a contest to see who is the best reciter in teh world, something like a rock concert of Quran recitation, and I find a similarity. For a side-by-side comparison:

Well, why didn't he do the Spanish song at first? The first song was boring!

I agree, I love both of them so much ! when flamenco is sang so well and when quran is recited so well, they are the only 2 things that a human voice could produce to shake me on the inside, give me goosebumps and make me cry !
these are 2 perfect examples, thank you for bringing that up!

LaVaquera, watch this (if you haven't already) -

Most likely this is the origin of both Cante and Muezzin.

Thank you Chester. This clip is beautiful. I have only recently found out about Latch Drom, and not seen it all the way through. I plan to. There is also another clip from the movie, from Egypt. I am Muslim, living in the USA. (I hope that doesn't make me target of attack on this board.) In social events surrounding our local mosque, we have parties for the ladies where each ethnic group is inevitably represented. We might have Afghani women do their dance, so we can see what it looks like. Then Bindi dance. Going to Egypt, I am familiar with the music and dance depicted in the clip below from the movie Latcho Drom. It is Upper Egypt, I believe. My home in teh SE USA is often filled with music from Cairo, including the old artists from the 1960s, who are held in great reverence today. How familiar we are with Abdel Halim Hafez and Oum Kalthoum! Just the mention of their name puts a smile on the face of every Egyptian. I can see the ancestry of Flamenco music, even in Egyptian music. Flamenco feels right to me, as it sounds like a blend of everything else I hear.
