Kristina plays the palo rumbas which was actually created in Spain around 1918 in response to the Afro-Caribbean beat. Rumbas are surprisingly the slowest of the flamenco cantes chicos. Also on this show, Kristina and acclaimed dancer/singer La Conja discuss La Conja’s lateral move from dancing to singing, and the consequences thereof.
