Flamenco is probably recognized as one of the most Spanish cultural icons in the world; accordingly, in 2010 UNESCO declared it an Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Even though this musical genre originated in Andalusia, nowadays Madrid is known as the capital of Flamenco. It is Madrid’s music industry that nurtures Flamenco globally and it is the starting point for many artists who go from country to country touching the hearts of audiences. Many actually succeed in Japan, the second homeland of Flamenco.
Madrid has also been the cradle of “bailaores” and “cantaores” of Flamenco. These include Mercedes López, La Chata de Madrid, who developed her singing career in the 19th and 20th century; Vicenta La Gitana, another “cantaora” from the same time who was the loving partner of the gypsy dancer Faíco, and the “cantores” El Canario de Madrid, El Canario de Colmenar, El Niño de Madrid, El Chato de Vicálvaro and El Chato de Las Ventas.
Madrid was also the birthplace of the dancer Eduardo Serrano, known as El Güito, who had Flamenco in his blood. A generation of Flamenco dancers from Madrid includes Teresa Vallejo, La Tati, Laura Gonzalez, Raquela Ortega, La Truco, daughter of the singer José Truco, and the dynasty of Los Pelaos.
