Spanish music is world famous, especially flamenco, an art that mixes music and dance, originating in southern Spain. Flamenco has evolved over time and transformed to incorporate modern music sounds from rock, pop, blues and jazz. Some famous Spanish flamenco artists include Raimundo Amador, Ketama, and Rosario Flores, among others.
Spanish music is not only represented by flamenco artists. For example, Montserrat Caballe, Plácido Domingo, José Carrera, and the late Alfredo Kraus have also greatly impacted the classical music genre and are internationally acclaimed.
What about modern Spanish music? There are plenty of popular Spanish songs and international Spanish artists like Joaquín Sabina, David Bisbal, Luz Casal, Alejandro Sanz, and Julio Iglesias that fill the radio with Latin rhythms and Spanish pop music. Even Spanish hip-hop has found its place in the music industry with artists like La Mala Rodríguez.
