"Granaína” or "granadinas" is a flamenco style that derives from “fandangos”. It is usually included in “malagueños” styles.
This style was originated is in “verdiales”. It had its development in “zambras” in Granada and was popularised in the late 19th century by Frasquito "Yerbagüena" and Paquillo "el Gas". Later, it was spreaded by Antonio Chacón, "El Peña" and Canalejas de Puerto Real.
“Granaína” has two variants: “granaína” itself, and “media granaína”. Both have a clear melodic line and a deep and difficult phrasing. The difference between the two variants is that the first one is quite extended in the third part, making a final modulation, which is characteristic of this singing.
