Who influenced Rosalia's work?
Rosalia was less influenced by a single person or persons than she was by flamenco music as a whole. She did not hear flamenco music until she was 13 years old, but then, she heard the swift melodies of Camaron and instantly fell in love with the sounds. She felt a strong pull toward the culture of flamenco music and has wanted to portray that in her music ever since.
