In this selection you will hear the feel of Arabic/Spanish influence in flamenco. For 800 years, region of southern spain were ruled by the Moors from North Africa, until they were driven out by the campaigns of Isabel and Ferdinand in 1492. This composition “Lagrimas de Granada”, was inspired by the last Arabic king who abondaned the city of Granada because it could not be saved from takeover by Christian armies. Legends says that while fleeing to the outskirts of the city, the King,Abu ‘Abd Allah-known in spain as Boabdil “el chico” – wept while being admonished by his old nursemaid : “You cry like a child for what you could not defend as a man" 

Juan Serrano

"Boabdil granada'yı görebileceği en son sırta ulaşınca, uzun bir süre devinimsiz kalarak,üzgün bir yüzle, ruhsal bir uyuşukluk içinde kente bakmış. Kastilyalılar bu sırtlara, "Arabın son iç çekişi” adını vermişler, çünkü derler ki düşmüş sultan orada utanç ve pişmanlıktan seller gibi gözyaşı dökmüş. Annesi Fatma da “Bir erkek gibi savunamadığın ülken için şimdi bir çocuk gibi ağlıyorsun” demiş.“
-Afrikalı Leo

Serrano'da ispanyolların boabdil,el chico(küçük) veya el zogoybi(talihsiz) olarak bildikleri kral Abu Abdullah'ın gözyaşlarını notalara dökmüş : "Granada'nın Gözyaşları”
