(From Granada, a distortion of granadina, meaning from Granada). It is a fandango from Granada, stripped of any rhythm. It belongs to the category of the cantes del Levante (songs from the south-east of Spain, the Levant; originating in the mines and expressing deep suffering, their urban variations tend to refer to love, life and death) and like the malagueña, it is based on the structure of the fandango. The granaína usually has an introductory ayeo (melodic wailing using the word “ay”), which is not found in the media granaína. It is sung in a free style and is accompanied by a guitar in B due to its acute tonality. Its music is elegant and rests on adornment.
