Abstract: The article explores the perseverance of particular aspects of flamenco popular culture. It focuses on the touristic manifestations of the Andalusian genre and their historical reconfigurations. Particular emphasis is placed on the correlations between the era of romanticism and contemporary times. Through the analysis of flamenco evolution I aim to demonstrate how flamenco's heritage influences gender distribution in the touristic dance and song realm. Such gender-related allocation remained unchanged over long periods of time.
Keywords: flamenco public domains; Andalusia; tourism; heritage; anthropology; gender; flamenco dance; flamenco song; popular culture.
