Bamburia is a composition by Wil Offermans for flute ensemble. The piece is based on the fascinating Spanish flamenco rhythm. From the introduction:
"A main element in Bamburia is the fascinating Spanish flamenco rhythm: the buleria. Basically, the buleria is a rhythm in 12-beats with the counting starting not on the 1st, but on the 11th beat. It is structured in a basic pattern with accents on the 12th, 3rd, 6th, 8th and 10th beat, like: 11-12-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10- etc. In Bamburia also a little more complex form is used: 11-12-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10- etc."
