(A phonetic distorsion of seguidilla, a diminuitive of seguida, an old dance form. It can be spelt in several ways: seguiriya (the most common), siguerilla, siguiriya,...) Together with the soleares, they are the top ranking component of flamenco. It is a very jondo (deep, solemn) cante (style of song), that is, it has very few lyrics and lots of wailing. It must be performed with plenty of feeling and temperament. It is an austere, strict, very stylised and ritualistic dance form, and it alternates the light marking of steps with zapateados (rhythmic combinations of sounds made by stepping with the toe, sole and heel of the foot). It is very well suited to being accompanied with castanets, the tailed gown or a shawl.
