Cantaor, a singer, tells legends and stories from everyday life that reflect the experiences of an outcast subculture within predominantly white, Christian Spain as an accompaniment to the dancers (bailaor [male], bailaora [female]). The dancer serves as both the story's protagonist and its translator in the song.
