About this book

This book provides insight into how flamenco travels, the forms it assumes in new locales, and the reciprocal effects on the original scene. 

Utilising a postnational approach to cultural identity, Martin explores the role of non-native culture brokers in cultural transmission. This concept, referred to as ‘cosmopolitan human hubs’, builds on Kiwan and Meinhof’s ‘hubs’ theory of network migration to move cultural migration and globalisation studies forwards. Martin outlines a post-globalisation flamenco culture through analysis of ethnographic research carried out in the UK, Sevilla and Madrid. Insight into these glocal scenes characterises flamenco as a historically globalized art complex, represented in various hubs around the world.

This alternative approach to music migration and globalisation studies will be of interest to students and scholars across leisure studies, musicology, sociology and anthropology.

Reviews

“In a globalizing world, it is of huge importance to understand not only the mobility of persons or objects, but also the mobility of ideas and cultural expertise. Transnational Flamenco is an outstanding ethnomusicological study on the manifold connections between Flamenco hubs across Spain and the UK.”— Larissa Schindler, Institute for Sociology, Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany

“Martin’s study of flamenco draws on her experience of seeing ex-pat communities in Spain interacting with local culture, as well as efforts to transmit flamenco outside Spain. She describes the formation of ‘cosmopolitan hubs’, whose drivers are not necessarily ethnically or nationally connected with the culture they transfer across borders; instead, they are people who have simply immersed themselves in that culture. A lively and enjoyable book – and not just for the flamenco aficionado!” —Derek B. Scott, University of Leeds, UK
