More than 1,000 years ago, the most important and influential cultures of the West; the Greco-Roman, Arab,Jewish Sephardic and the culture of the gypsies of India gathered in a land called Andalusia. There they created one of the most important musical movements of our era, flamenco. However, Andalusia was not only the birthplace of flamenco but also of Pablo Picasso and the great Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca and the influences of flamenco and the culture of Andalusia are seen throughout their work.
