Arte gitano 

I was invited to the First Communion celebration of the family of Juan Villar today, a great celebration. One of the nietos who is not yet 2 years old and is learning to walk, showed that, in spite of all, he can dance bulería if accompanied by the palmas of the family.

In this family, the children can sing and play palmas before they can speak

Sounds like they have their priorities in order.

Its not really surprising. Children have a lesser degree of bias unlike an experienced Adult which makes them much more absorbent to the learning process. There is a reason people are always conditioning children even if the children are not their own.

'accompanied by the palmas of the family.'

That's conditioning of Flamenco right there, and I'm willing to bet its all backed up by tons of positive reinforcement , lots of smiles, laughs , voicing of encouragement, clapping and all the general support of a healthy family.

So from an early age associations are already being made between the positive reinforcement of family and culture which happens to = flamenco in this case.

Sounds envious (as far as being steeped in flamenco is concerned)

That's amazing and so endearing. My family was always supportive of my music from an early age, maybe not so much when I was in my cranked-100w-wannabe-Hendrix phase

I got started pretty early but I've always wished I had been pushed to start even earlier. Those really early years seem to have been very formative for many musicians.
