IslamiCity > Travel > 2008 Summer Program to Spain
The following are optional cultural activities that students may wish to experience on their own time.
Since the 18th century, bullfighting has been a national spectator sport in Spain. During the summer months, many bullfights are scheduled throughout the country in every major city. The spectacle is full of drama, but is not for the squemish.

Bullfighting is primarily a summertime sport, and it may not be possible to view a bullfight during your tour at other times of the year.


Gypsy Flamenco
Flamenco music is quite recent (no more than 200 years old), even though its origins can be found in Arab, Sefardi (Spanish-Jewish) and Christian Middle-Age music. It is said that Flamenco emerged as a product of the mixture between two cultures: the centuries-old "Andalusi" culture and the Gypsy culture which appeared in Spain at the end of the Muslim era (15th century).

Flamenco performances take place year-round in Sevilla, Cordoba, and Granada.

Andalusi Music
The Andalusi Muslims developed their own distinctive style of music and song. This style can still be found in North Africa today, and it is making a strong resurgence in the land of its birth, thanks to its revival by today's Spanish Muslims. We may hear some performances of the beautiful `ud and accompanying instruments during our stay in Granada.
