Callejón de Luna (taranta). Composed and performed by Vicente Amigo.
The taranta style of flamenco belongs to the family of Cantes de Levante (i.e., songs from Levante) from the eastern region of Spain where it seems the style originated. Like most flamenco, the taranta was originally created for guitar and voice. It is a direct descendant of the Spanish fandango but with no meter or tempo (i.e., ad libitum) and is often played in very dissonant modes (e.g., F# Flamenco & Ab Flamenco). Guitarist Ramón Montoya (1879-1949) was the first to pave the way for instrumental versions of this style.
