  1. The Arabic melody that you hear when you played the Spanish has an explanation. There is a connection. Way back in the day Spain was almost entirely ruled by the Moors for over 700 years. Hence the Arabic influence is present in Spanish architecture, music, cuisine, as well with other cultural similarities.

    1. And, interestingly, the word “guitar” < Spanish guitarra < Arabic kītārah ≪ Greek kithára (dictionary.com)

    2. During the spread of Islam the muslims invaded southern ibera and eventually conquered the entire iberian peninsula. This is also true for all of North Africa, southern italy and southern france. Multible raids and conquests darkened the general skintone of the population trough years of population replacement. Spaniards are therefore a little darker than what they used to be.
