Garrotín

What is the Flamenco Garrotín?

The flamenco Garrotín is a festive and cheerful style in major mode, 2/4 time. The Garrotín originated in northern Spain near Asturias, and can include singing or dancing as well as guitar accompaniment. As a branch of the flamenco Tangos, the Garrotín shares many musical traits common with this palo.

The renowned flamenco singer La Niña de los Peines helped establish the Garrotín as a popular palo.
