The colors,
the sensual moves,
that mystery in the dance
and the beauty of it all
are components for the seeds
that out of the Middle East
were planted by the Moors,
in the south of Spain.

the roots became strong
next to the graceful good songs
of the Jews.

The Spaniards could not resist
the flames of this foreign music,
its rhythm... the beat,
but the gypsies brought a new
aristocratic dimension
and charismatic persuasion
to embrace and dance Flamenco.
