Flamenco artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good flamenco bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top flamenco bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Flamenco groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all flamenco bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest flamenco bands of all time, since the most famous flamenco artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best flamenco music.

You can click on the flamenco band names to see more information about that particular notable flamenco group. If they're near the top of the best flamenco artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top flamenco bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the flamenco band names themselves.

Artists here include everything from Rodrigo y Gabriela to Buckethead. Rank your favorite artists to see them get to the top of the list. If you like Lenny Breau or Tim Scott, then make your voice heard.

All important, significant and iconic names in flamenco music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new flamenco bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of flamenco, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into flamenco music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good flamenco bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent flamenco bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best flamenco bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest flamenco musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular flamenco bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
