"Provinicia Baetica was the old Roman name for Andalusia and so a translation of the title might be "Andalusian Fantasy."
Although the materials used are original with Falla, they strongly evoke the folk music of southern Spain:
the strident, somber cante jondo sung in oriental-sounding scales, chords derived from guitar tunings, and a harsh
percussive quality reminiscent of castanets and heel stamping."
