Nuevo Horizonte (rumba). Composed & performed by Antonio Rey with his ensemble.
The flamenco rumba belongs to a family of flamenco musical styles called cantes de ida y vuelta (i..e., round-trip songs) pointing to the fusion of music between Spain and Central and South America (esp. Cuba). In fact, the closest "relatives" to the flamenco rumba are the Cuban guaracha (hua-ra-cha) and the Cuban papalote -- both being Cuban rumbas. The flamenco rumba was a fusion between the flamenco tango and the Cuban rumba and took shape in Spain in the early 20th century. Here Antonio Rey and his ensemble perform a very melodic and energetic instrumental rumba. Enjoy!
