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 Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? - Bryan Adams

It features flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia - Metal_Treasure

3 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

4 Magnetic Propulsion (Tientos) - Flametal

Ben woods is very creative

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

5 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. The flamenco interlude was played by Yes guitarist Steve Howe who had come to visit them and was asked to play. - 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 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

9 Volare - Gipsy Kings
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
