The Arab word Farah means dress, while lebs means joy.
Farah-lebs is therefore ‘dress of joy’,
something like ‘a Flamenco animal dressed in Flamenco’.
Flamenco comes from Moorish Arabic.
Felah means farmer, Menkud the marginalised, the excluded,
the person stripped of everything material and everything immaterial.
Felah-Menkud is the person who gave the art of Flamenco its beginning.
