“Rumba flamenca” is a “palo” with a flamenco touch even in performances which aren't very typical of this art. Voices are usually male and female with instrumental performances. “Rumba flamenco” was originated from flamenco and Cuban rumba. In Spain, it was released in theaters and variety shows, where flamenco artists adopted it.
It is related to “rumba catalana”. Its main instruments are guitar, flamenco clapping and castanets. In the late 70's and beginning of 80's, flamenco box drum was incorporated in this genre. Some renowned artists interpreted this genre, mixing it with pop sounds: los Chichos, los Chunguitos, los Calis, Alazán, El Fary, Ketama, Las Grecas, Manzanita, Los Amaya, Rumba Tres, Melendi, Ojos de Brujo, Los Manolos, Azúcar Moreno , Los del Río, or the children of Lola Flores (Rosario, Lolita and Antonio).
