1 - Lomax's notes in his log and on the tape boxes remark that these recordings were made during a fiesta in Tarifa, in the southwest of Andalusia. Lomax calls the tent "poor," and says that the gathering was of people who "liked old-fashioned fandangos;" they "made music until dawn," and were not professionals. Several typical small percussion instruments are heard, such as the scraped bottle. [Source: field log, tape boxes]
