Ventanas al Alma (Flamenco Guitar)

Updated: Jul 17, 2023


Ventanas al Alma (minera). Composed and performed by Vicente Amigo.


The minera is another style of flamenco music that belongs to the "Cantes de Levante" styles within the “fandango natural” family. These fandangos are written without a time signature and are played ad libitum even though the flamenco fandango is originally a 3/4 style with a clear tempo. Mineras are traditionally written in the key of Ab Spanish Phrygian and are characterized by the use of the Ab Andalucian Cadence and a strong, expressive quality that sounds almost improvisational.
