El Garrotín

Garrotín is a style (palo) of flamenco singing, dancing, and guitar playing, which developed near the end of the nineteenth century in Asturias, in northern Spain. It is played or sung in a Major mode, and a simple 2/4 meter, and has a cheerful and festive character. After being introduced into the flamenco repertoire, garrotín was further developed by singer Pastora Pavón (“Niña de los Peines”), and has been recently popularized by dancer, Carmen Amaya.
