Nuevo Flamenco ("New Flamenco") is synonymous with contemporary flamenco and is a modern derivative of traditional flamenco (see the cafés cantantes period, and Ramón Montoya (1880–1949)).

It is widely accepted that Nuevo Flamenco started in 1975 with the Lole y Manuel first album Nuevo Día. Although the most important early pioneers of modern flamenco are widely accepted to be the guitarist Paco de Lucía, and singer Camarón de la Isla, other musical genres have also played a key role in influencing nuevo flamenco.

Some of today's leading flamenco guitarists are Paco de Lucia, Tomatito, Vicente Amigo, Gerardo Nuñez, Juan Martín, Niño Josele. Some of today's leading flamenco singers are Diego El Cigala, Duquende, Enrique Morente, and his daughter Estrella Morente.
