Lose yourself in the drama and passion of the gipsy dance known as Zambra. Hear the clacking of the finger cymbals; see the swirling skirts and the crisp footwork of the graceful performers.
Opt for a delicious Andalusian dinner before the performance or just go along to watch the show. Whichever option you choose, it will be a night to remember!

The 90-minute show takes place in a ‘cave’ setting at Venta El Gallo, at the Sacromonte. This venue specializes in Zambra, a style of flamenco dance performed by the Romani people (Gitanos) of Granada. It is said to have developed from historic Moorish dances and has some resemblance to belly dancing. Zambra is danced barefoot with finger cymbals, the blouse is tied under the bust and the skirt is drawn tight around the hips before flaring out to a ruffle at the end.
The Zambra is danced at Gitano weddings and performed for tourists in the Andalusian Sacromonte Caves and Hills. At one time it was outlawed and became known as the ‘Forbidden Dance’.
At the end of the evening you will be dropped off back at your hotel in Granada.
