Chapter Summary

“Sonido ciudadísimo”: Black Noise Andalusian Style in Contemporary Spain In contemporary Spanish music a new genre called “flamenco hip-hop” has arisen. This “urban sound” combines elements of two different traditions: rap music, which is embedded in the larger context of US African American and global hip-hop culture, is blended with flamenco, which is a traditional musical and corporeal expression in Southern Spain. Both their histories have been the subject of different narratives to which the new hybrid genre of flamenco hip-hop connects. This contribution asks about the “cultural matrix” that might link these two expressive forms and establishes three categories for a comparative analysis: the performative aesthetics, the urban setting and the potential for cultural resistance.
