The art of Flamenco music, song and dance developed in southern Spain in the Andalusian region associated with the Roma or gypsy people. In Spain, the Roma are called Gitanos. It is believed that the Gitanos migrated from northwest India between the 9th and 14th centuries. Flamenco is the result of Roma music mixed with the rich cultures of the Sephardic Jews and the Moors, also living in southern Spain. If you look closely at flamenco dance movements, you may recognise arm, hand, and foot movements that closely resemble those of classical Hindu dance.
