History of flamenco 8
From the 20s, they start to see that the flamenco shows are changing and it was included in the type called Opera flamenca. Polemic field or name that more than one "flamencologist" pretends to explain by the differences of percentages that the shows paid: the artistic and variety ones 10%; the instrumental ones and singing ones 3% 1
Pepa Marchena relates us the situation of the flamenco and the new type of show which was setting off: "In this period, people sang everything, but what the audience liked, like it has happened always, were the fandangos; as for the performers, ones who were the best and pleased the audience the most were Tomás Pavón and Chacón [...] In the 30s, after the Opera Flamenca, which I already told you that I was performing until the end of 1929 2 I did a tour through France with Ramón Montoya"3.
