Zambra (zambra) composed by Juan Habichuela; performed & arranged by his grandson, Juan Habichuela "Nieto."
The zamba is a style of Spanish song and dance that originated in the late 1800s in Granada. It is characterized by a 4/4 meter and a rhythm identical to the flamenco tangos. Harmonically, zambras tend to be written in 3 modalities (major, minor, and Spanish Phrygian) and have a very clear Arabic influence. Here Juan Habichuela "Nieto" plays an instrumental version.
