Is Pop Music Addicted to Hand Clapping?
Dalton Vogler

outside the US giant hall of mirrors , clapping hands is often a feature of music by people of nomadic origin : people on the move travel light . Romany music ( particularly Andalusian gitano music , known strangely ,as flamenco) on the other side of the north atlantic uses minimum baggage : tambourines ,guitars , small wind instruments ,voices and ..Clapping.

In flamenco ,

the rhythm are quite complex , group patterns with cross-rhythms .

Clog-dancing and Tap-dancing have similar origins,for similar reasons .

Dancing round the fire on a saturday night is not an american invention.
