  6. 6. FLAMENCO The origins of the word flamenco are unclear - it was not recorded until the late 18th cen- tury. Flamenco is popularly depicted as being the music of Andulusian gitanos (gypsies) but historically its roots are in mainstream Anda- lusian society, beginning in the 18th century. Other regions, notably Extremadura and Murcia, have also contributed to the develo- pment of flamenco, and many flamenco ar- tists have been born outside the gitano com- munity. Latin American and especially Cuban influences have also contributed.
