hey doublekk2
where did you find that?

I've been doing research for my seminar, and have read many books/academic articles stating what you have above...interesting readings. There is also some kind of movie/documentary detailing the gypsies route from India to Spain, I just forget its name. Anyone know?

Thanks for info! I was aware that the word "flamenco" has its origins in Arabic. I am using these sources for my students, hope they help:

no, unfortunately I do not read spanish (yet). And yes I am well aware that this is just a theory of migration, albeit one of the more popular ones. The class I am teaching is an anthropology class focusing on the culture of flamenco music. It is geared to undergraduate students here at UCLA. Anyways, I have all the readings picked out for my class, but any other recommendations is always welcomed for my own personal gain.

Laitcha Dron by Tony Gatlif is a very good film which illustrates this path.

Glad to be of help (for a change).
It's a really beautiful film no dialogue just music,music,music.

His other film Swing has lots of guitar (Django style). Vengo has Tomatito (but less music in general.

Laitcha Dron is really fascinating as to the ear there is not much in common between the music of Rajistani gypsies and those in Belguim but by the time you've taken the journey you can kind of hear it. I found it really spellbiding in particulare one old Tzigane violinist who played a tune on his G-string, without the bow, by stripping its winding.

It's the first film I've watched twice through in the same day since I was a child. If you can find it you'll be glad you did.

Regards ,

David.

RE: gypsies map (in reply to Guest

i should mention here as a man from flanders, belgium that there is also an option that the word flamenco comes from my people in the 15/16th century.
Spain was dominant in the world at that time after the moors where chased out granada in 1492. the flemish people where also ruled by the spanish government and where known as flamenco (this is still the name for my language untill now in spain)
apparantly we where a bunch of people back then who made a lot of noise, drank too much and lived life like there was no tomorrow. nothing has changed really.

just to say that we will probably never know.
and like ricardo said, who cares? but it can be interesting.

For Ricardo ( if your 'So what ? 'was for me ). If it is not possible to find a DVD for sale anywhere on the web I think it is reasonable to use a download manager and would reccommend Emule.

RE: gypsies map (in reply to guitarbuddha

guitarbuddha. It was in regards to the orginal migration map and discussion. Sorry for confusion. To be sure, check the "in reply to..." at the top of people's posts. At least if there is no quotes, it makes things more clear.

By so what I mean, at this point I don't think it really matters where different racial groups came from, plus this info is vague, as pointed out. Flamenco is not specifically gipsy music anyway. A lot of the gipsy migration movies follow the gipsies from India, etc etc, and try to show that there is some similarity to it all. Really it would good to show the how the gipsies affect the music that already seemed to exist in surrounding areas. For example French gipsy "hot jazz" versus the normal swing bands. Or Gypsy Kings style Rumba vs. Catalan Rumba. etc.

RE: gypsies map (in reply to Guest

Hi Ricardo. I suppose I'm not really up to speed yet with the technology, I'm kind of a born again technophobe.
If everyone watches Latcho Drom then this thread has done some good it really is a beautiful piece of work.

I agree with you that the pace of modern media really gives us a butterfly effect in music. So much so that I find Grishas unadulterated and wholeheartedly dated playing to be a breath of fresh air. Like beef and potatoes after a diet of fusion food, it has to be really good when there is no spice to hide behind.
As for the travelling peoples well I kind of empathise with them as I seem to be constantly penalised for rejecting the mainstream ( and paperwork ).

Happy playing,

David.

I took a gypsy culture/film class in college, All I really remember is that there were a lot of hot girls in the class. And my professor said he knew Tomatito.

RE: gypsies map (in reply to guitarbuddha

I've read and been told the same theories about the migration into Spain from the North and the South. It's getting to be received wisdom now.
But to my mind anyway, you'd have to be both blind and deaf not to see and hear the MAJOR impact that Arabic culture had on Andalucia and Flamenco IMO.
Just because Iberia is separated from North Africa by a few miles of water, does not make it a different country intellectually... only politically.

When I made my first journey to Spain many years ago, I was more surprised at the difference between Catalonia and Andalucia than Andalucia and Morrocco!

I think the only thing we have in common between the two cultures, musically, is the guitar.

That is the "bridge" in Flamenco IMO.

Everything Flamenco can be explained to the "West" on the guitar.

That's why I find attempting to write down Flamenco in Classical music notation is about as unweildy and unhelpful as trying to explain Algebra in Roman numerals.

Cifra/Tabs is probably as close as you'll get since it points simply to fretboard locations and assumes the user knows the form.

I would love to see a Classical score for ANY Flamenco singer...

Anyway...excuse the divergent ramblings...

cheers

Ron

okay ricardo no problem if you dont like the migration map and the discussion its so simple dont comment but i think there is others was intersted inthe discussion and the map and for me i enjoyed it so much,i prefer yr replay was a good info or sharing with any other way nt (so what???) which meansthat you just want to play without knowing the history which is against my thoughts that i would love to know the history cause i find the flamenco is very close to my culture and i listen to it on oud scales and defrent types of orintal music .... anyway you re welcome to share .... nt to replay me so what ??

Ron,you are entitled to your opinion. I disagree.
Oral tradition is rich and varied. So is written tradition.

Why choose one whenyou can have BOTH ?

Reallly ....why ?
