It is a light form typical of cante chico, and is traditionally danced only by men. It is said to be invented in the 19th century by a dancer named Faico; others who stylized and expanded farruca included Antonio de Bilbao.
Other sources indicate that Farruca originated in Galicia, a region in northern Spain. Although there are female flamenco dancers who exclusively danced farruca too such as Rafaela Valverde also known as La Tanguera , these female dancers originally danced the farruca wearing male clothing.
Farruca is seldom sung. The flamenco form Farruca has little to do with the music of northern Spain, though some of the melodic themes associated with the farruca are reminiscent of tunes from Galicia. Based on the Tangos Gitano, it is a four-count form with a strong emphasis on the first beat. It is in a minor key, as opposed to the major phrygian mode usually associated with Tangos Gitano. For many years, La Farruca was performed exclusively by men and without singing.
Great women dancers such as Carmen Amaya and the contemporary dancer Sara Baras have also created well-known versions of the dance.
