Users viewing this topic: I’ve seen a few vids, and heard mira few clips of Zambra and Zambra related items One of the caves in the Sacromonte has a plaque dedicated to the founders of the Zambra i’ll take a photo later and post it this afternoon.

It was originally a dance performed by women with Arabic origin or at least heavy arabic influence. Bells were worn on the ankles to accent the compas.

Now I’m guessing this bit but Andalucia was a fairly liberal islamic enclave that permitted music and dancing.

It is probable that the Zambra is based on an older dance from the moorish courts. The Alternating bass line of drop D bass string to D string is reminiscent of the ‘Oud. Musically it was greatly advanced by sabicas who wrote at least 4 versions of the Zambra including a wonderful “fantasia”.

Many Zambra falsetas that are considered “traditional” are actually Sabicas. I was lucky to learn his version before he died. Sadly it is a form that is rarely performed now which is a shame because it is one of the most evocative of moorish spain. Sxbicas Moorish party music it was adapated by the Gitanos and the word Zambra was used to denote the place and the the show performed in the caves of the Sacromonte.

According to my ‘Guide to Andalusian Music’ Manolo Caracol called his own personal style Zambra but it had nothing to do with the above. Back from the sacromonte. Here is the photo of the plaque. Images are swbicas automatically to a maximum width of px Attachment 1. I turned around and took this photo of the Alhambra too. It was quite a sunset!!


Ah ha nothing is safe from the fiendish smoking sticker man. We get one of these stickers a week put on our door, one day I will catch the bugger. Don’t know if thats right or wrong Henry but inclined to think it ios coincidence and go for kates version since the music was originally played on the ‘Oud. Listen to the Sabicas recordings of Zambra or Danza Arabe.

Here is first page. Anyone else wanting this version, please send mor. I will be back on the weekend! A few modern guys do it for baile, Viejin and Jesus de Rosario to name two. At first you might assume it is tangos.

Thats a beautiful composition by Viejin but i got to admit that personally, I prefer the old style of Zambra. The modern composition sounds too close to tangos.

To my mind Zambra should sound moorish. Here is one of the sabicas version. Little ragwado for sure. I would say, Sabicas the inventor is not likely. This type of thing goes back further than Tarrega IMO, when classical guitar and flamenco guitar as playing styles were not so clear cut. My all time favorite zambra is still Nino Ricardo’s version. Paco Pena plays it on his album: Flamenco guitar music of R. I think I’m going to sit down and actually start learning this one. I love the way PP plays it but would love to hear a recording of N.

Ricardo himself playing it, swbicas well He has a great tremolo but that is about the most unmusical interpretation of a Danza Mora that I’ve heard. Go find any recording of Sabicas or Mario Escudero to hear the way it should be played.

Is this the Paco Pena version you were talking about? Or just another similar sounding version? In the last year or so I have found that the Zambra can be called Zambra Gitana Zambra Mora Zambra Granaina I believe these to be different names for exactly the same thing.

If anyone knows differently I would be happy if they could point out the differences. In most cases the guitar is tuned to a Drop D on the bass. Now, there a couple of Zambras where this isnt the case. For example, Enrique Granados wrote a Zambra in C major spanish dance number However this was composed on piano and so that would explain why he didnt choose the key of D.


Another category relating to Zambras are “Danzas Arabes”. Danzas Arabes seem to appear in both Flamenco and classical repertoires.

Sometimes they are in Drop D tuning sometimes in standard tuning. Another similar form are the Arabescas or Arabesques. Arabescas appear moea classical music and seem to be related to arabic dances. They are themes with an oriental or sabicad influence but dont daanza to fit any particular form. My question sabicaa really about the relation between zambras and arabescas.

Is the arabesca a classical interpretation of a flamenco Zambra?

It occurs to me that the Zambra comes specifically from Granada whereas the Arabesque could come from anywhere in Spain with a moorish influence. Perhaps that is sabicqs difference? CD and digital download vailable on Amazon and CDbaby. Some time in the early s I was driving from Algeciras to Cadiz along the coast. But when I got to Tarifa, Africa beckoned. One of my adventures was at an upscale night club in the basement of a hotel outside Tangier, in the company of some wealthy Morrocans.

We arrived around midnight in a convoy of Mercedes limos, segregated by gender so as not to fall dsnza of the morality police. The women were accompanied by their maids.

Danza Mora

Our reserved table for 16 or 20 people was at the edge of the dance floor. The women stood up to dance. They stepped out in what looked to me like belly dancing moves. The maids provided a very complex accompaniment of palmas. I listened carefully to the music, fascinated. Yes, daanza was literally zambra mora.

Paul Magnussen did the same, very accurately and nicely set up in scoring software. I came across Paul’s somewhere on the net, maybe in the Tabs section here? My understanding is that the zambra is the slow end of the zambra – tientos – tangos spectrum. He recorded them in several keys: Daza I listened to a long time ago were very much like flamenco tangos.

A four-beat compas with maybe the accent on the second savicas.
