Mercado Morisco (Moorish market) is a flamenco bulerías guitar duet with Baroque counterpoint accompanied by an Argentine chacarera strum.
It's an example of the 12-beat hemiola (compound meter with alternating measures of 3/4 and 6/8) that has fascinated the Iberian peoples and their descendents in Latin America for centuries - and me as well.
