Intro to Flamenco Rhythm // TANGOS

In the video below you will be able to hear Manuel 'El Marmol' playing 'compás por tangos' and José accompanying Manuel with palmas. In the second half of the video Renae joins José to perform the base rhythm with 'palmas sordas' and José plays with the rhythm against Renae's palmas.

 

Can you hear a 4 beat rhythm when you listen to the video?

Can you accompany the video with your own palmas?

Can you understand the palmas pattern that José uses to accompany Manuel?
