One of the most traditional fusions in flamenco is the Al-Andalus Islamic music, or Sephardi music, with flamenco. Juan Peña, ‘El Lebrijano’, was one of the pioneers who researched and recorded with Tanger Al-Andalus Orchestra. This investigation became very popular in the early 1980s and many more sang in this style, for example Lole Montoya.
Nowadays, there are still certain encounters between these musical styles. In order to create this fusion, we need a violinist who sings in Arabic, a guitarist and a singer – and a flamenco dancer may also be added.
