While the Andalusian and best-known forms of fandango share certain distinctive musical features, these same features can be seen to link these subgenres, historically and structurally, to much broader sets of transatlantic musical families, older genres like the zarabanda and chacona, a wide family of Caribbean-Basin ternary forms, as well as Andean and South American relatives. At the same time, clear distinctions can be made between genres related to this fandango complex and other major musical families in the Spanish Atlantic.


This work was originally published in "The Global Reach of the Fandango in Music, Song and Dance: Spaniards, Indians, Africans and Gypsies," edited by K. Meira Goldberg and Antoni Pizà.
