The most distinctive and passionate symbol of Seville - flamenco - is not just a dance, it is a style of living in Spain.
Spanish gypsy that used to live on the thouthern seaside of Spain in Andalusia once noticed that the mix of Moresco, Jewish and Spanish sounds can create something true and authentic. That was the way of flamenco becoming. It used to be "forbidden art" and only in XVIII century the dance came out on Spanish streets. Nowadays Flamenco is an essential part of Spanish culture.
