The verdiales

Right smack in the middle of the Spanish Christmas season, we have the annual Verdiales competitions taking place right outside Málaga City. The festival will bring together competing “pandas” as they are known. These are groups that practice one of three different forms of Verdiales flamenco singing accompanied by their traditional folk dance and unforgettable costumes.
