"Alboreá" is a singing style whose name comes from "alboradas" singing which refers to "albor" (dawn). This singing has a Castilian origin.
It is a singing which is seldom part of flamenco recitals because it's believed that it is related to superstition. It is usually sung in gypsy marriage rites and their lyrics are linked to this topic. For gipsy singers, this style should be keep for weddings and not be sung out of these ceremonies.
Its lyrics should be accompanied by 4 seven-syllable verses and a refrain. The metric is variable. Traditionally, this genre is performed following "seguidilla" rhythm, although the most actual forms are performed following "bulerías" rhythm.
