From Jerez, the name bulerías is said to come from the words
to joke or
commotion ‑ it's a typically party dance. In 12/8 compás, the tempo is fast and the most commonly marked accents are shown below.
Each verse stands alone and a dancer can accompany just one or many ‑ mostly improvising to the music and song. There is no formal structure, and it is a showcase for spontaneity with singers and dancers joining in without warning! It is also used as the final part to all 12 beat dances, including Soleá and Alegrías, and most shows will end with a
Fin de Fiesta - a party finish which is where all the artists perform their own bulerías, sometimes singers and guitarists even get up to dance!
