Music

Historically, music has also served as a vehicle for expressing Spain's varied cultural tradition. Spanish music has furnished some of the most notable chapters in the musical history of the West, from old Gregorian chants and Renaissance motets and madrigals through to the work of figures such as Falla, Albéniz and Granados. The country's rich and varied folklore can also be seen in Spain's highly creative popular music. And now in modern times, Spanish musicians have also enthusiastically embraced today's musical trends. An excellent example of this dedication to music is the wide variety of music festivals which are held from one end of the country to the other.
