Here's the Ben Woods Flamenco Guitar piece 'Peteneras' from the album and video series 'Nashville Sessions 2016 & 2018'. Peteneras is an interesting flamenco palo (song form) shrouded in mystery that is thought to have originated in the province of Cádiz, Spain. According to a legend the name of the song refers to a woman singer called "La Petenera". Due to her seductive power she was reported to be "the damnation of men" and the form is thought to be bad luck to perform.
