What is the Flamenco Zambra?
Zambra is a flamenco style that originated in Granada and Almeira. The Zambra is believed to have derived from earlier Moorish dance styles. As a result, the melodies usually have an arabesque quality.
Zambras are very metric, typically have a bouncy, alternating bass on strong beats. When playing a Zambra, guitarists will usually tune their guitar bass string down to drop D.
