Trouble with the audio sample?

"Vamo' Alla Flamenco" is a piece of music from the game Final Fantasy IX composed by Nobuo Uematsu, included in the Original Soundtrack. It is the music played during the sword fight mini-game between Blank and Zidane near the beginning of the game, and when playing Chocobo Hot-and-Cold.

Vamo' Alla Flamenco is a depiction of Vamos allá, Flamenco, a Spanish expression meaning freely "Let's go, Flamenco". A common idiom utilised in southern Spain, the title may be a reference to the "Spanish" feel of the tune, although what Uematsu meant by naming the composition so remains a matter of debate.

"Vamo Alla Flamenco" includes at one point in its harmonic centre the chord progression of a very famous Flamenco guitar musical theme, "La Malagueña"; it shares, as well, its diatonic scale of E-minor.
