History of flamenco 13
Like it happened with the festivals, during the second half of the 20th century, they establish Peñas Flamencas (flamenco clubs), a new social infrastructure that appears around the flamenco world, fulfilling various functions for the development of flamenco.
The first ones start in the 60s. In province of Sevilla, the most veteran is Torres Macarena, which was founded in 1974. Its constitution and legal organization usually comes from the influence of cultural associations. In its short history, peñas flamencas have occupied an important position in the organization of the flamenco world, participating in its development. Its existence generally links to the eclosion of the festivals; to the formation of new cantaores and audience; and to help the seasonality of the professional flamenco in the last decades.
