Such humour is rare in the traditional lyric of the cante because the style of song was originally determined by the degree of inhospitableness of the context: taverns called for the storytelling tonas; prison begat the carcelera; blacksmith's forges rang to martinetes; funerals favoured the playeras or siguiriyas; mines had the minera or taranta: smuggler's refuges sound the serrana, and brothels played their anthem--the petenera.
