Traditional Dances MURCIA

The parranda is a traditional Spanish dance that originated from the Region of Murcia, the eastern areas of Almería, and the southeastern areas of Albacete in the 18th century. It is a dance similar to the seguidilla, and is usually characterized by its usage of extraordinary jumps and turns in the air.

The parranda originated from seguidilla, an old Castilian form of folk music and dance, during the 18th century,[2][3] within the Region of Murcia, as well as the eastern areas of Almería (Los VélezLevante Almeriense [es] and Valle de Almanzora) and the southeastern areas of Albacete (Campos de Hellín and Sierra de Segura) in the 18th century
