Flamenco Quote of the Day

The jaleo is a necessary and intricate component of flamenco...the jaleo is basically made up of hand-clapping and shouts of encouragement, and can also be supplemented by finger-snapping and rhythmical punctuations with the feet...uninitiated spectators will often attempt to join in on the jaleo, not realizing that it is a science in itself. Sadly enough for the non-performer, none of flamenco's components, including the jaleo, can be attempted successfully without extensive training.
