Top 10 Songs Featuring a Flamenco Guitar


The Top Ten

1 Entre dos Aguas - Paco de Lucia

Instrumental by the master of flamenco guitar - Metal_Treasure

Definitely deserves the top spot. - zxm

2 Bamboleo - Gipsy Kings

They are a flamenco, salsa and pop group from France who perform in Spanish. The group members were born in France but their parents were mostly gitanos, Berber-Moroccan and Spanish gypsies.
Their music is rumba flamenca style with pop influences. - Metal_Treasure

3 Innuendo - Queen

The flamenco part made by the guitarist of Yes and not by Brian May!

Great song but the flamenco part is too small to put it higher. - Metal_Treasure


4 Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? - Bryan Adams

It features flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia - Metal_Treasure

5 Magnetic Propulsion (Tientos) - Flametal

Instrumental mixing flamenco and metal (2014).
Guitars: Ben Woods (flamenco and metal guitarist) who invented this fusion metal subgenre - flamenco metal.
Electric guitar solos are by a guest musician - Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth)
I think this band (Flametal) is still the only representative of this subgenre but I am not sure. - Metal_Treasure

6 Time What Is Time - Blind Guardian

Flamenco and metal? Why not? (it's only the intro) - Metal_Treasure

7 Rio Ancho - Paco de Lucia

This deserves to be in the top 3 but I wanted to create variety by adding different music artists (and a Paco de Lucia song is already at #1) - Metal_Treasure

8 Volare - Gipsy Kings
9 Cosmosis (Bulerias) - Flametal

Flamenco metal (instrumental, 2014).
This song starts with a short flamenco intro, followed by a thrash metal riff, continues with power/speed metal drumming, adds some prog metal sections, and of course - more flamenco. Guess what - I absolutely love it! - Metal_Treasure

10 Painters of the Tempest, Pt. III (Reveries from the Stained Glass Womb) - Ne Obliviscaris

Extreme progressive metal band but their lead guitarist is trained in flamenco guitar (and their awesome lead singer is a trained violinist. Love this band! Play the song sample to hear both the flamenco guitar and the violin) - Metal_Treasure
