“Jabera” is one of the oldest flamenco styles of the group of “malagueñas”. Same as "rodeñas" und "malagueñas", “jabera” is a direct descendant of "fandango".
This style emerged at the same time that those ones, but it has its own development. It was quite spreaded over 19th and 20th centuries. One of the first great interpreters was El Mimi but perhaps the most famous was El Chato de Jerez, who introduced it in "cafés cantantes" in Madrid. Nowadays, this style is not too much developed by most modern singers.
