- Music of Aragon
The music of Aragon, like its culture, has through history absorbed Roman, Celtic, Moorish and French influences. Traditional instruments include bagpipes, drums, flutes, tambourines, rattles and, perhaps most distinctively, the guitarro.
Jota (music) is probably the best-known style of music from Aragon. While regionally emblematic to Aragon, the Jota is also danced in most regions of Spain, unlike for instance flamenco which until recently was uniquely regional to Andalucia and some neighbouring areas. The Jota is played instrumentally, danced, and sung.
Other genres of traditional Aragonese music include albadas and rondas.
