Bulerias is a flamenco form that originates in Jerez. This arrangement is by Bob Hooper.
Bulerías is one of flamenco’s most flexible forms – constantly changing, spontaneous, humorous, equally at home on a concert stage or at a private juerga. It’s the Rock’n Roll of flamenco – fast, rhythmic party music laced with social commentary that mocks the rich as it entertains them.
Cantes por bulerías began with Jerezano singer Loco Mateo (c. 1832-1890), who would conclude his specialty, the soleares, with a remate (ending) por bulerías.
Bulerías is closely associated with the City of Jerez de la Frontera, specifically Barrio San Miguel, the home of many of flamenco’s most influential artists, including Loco Mateo, Agujetas, and Don Antonio Chacón.
Rooted in the soleares, the bulerías also has aspects of older flamenco forms including jaleos and bamberas. The word ‘bulerías” comes from the word “burlar,” meaning to mock, outwit, or escape danger.
