Tarantos

What is the Flamenco Tarantos?

The flamenco Taranto is different from the toque libre Tarantas palo, with a strong rhythmic feel structured in a compás of 4s (2/4 or 4/4 time), making it more danceable. The key signature and basic chord structure is the same as Tarantas (two sharps), so their harmonic relationship is clear and distinct.

For more details on the form, please see the page on Tarantas.
