The Farruca has a form which is sung, although it is now almost invariably performed as a dance or a guitar solo. It had its origin in Galicia in northern Spain (a somewhat unlikely place in flamenco geography), and Galicians who emigrated were given the name ‘farruco’. When the farruca reached Andalucia it began to change its character, taking on a flamenco form over the course of time.
