Cepa Andaluza is a 1972 composition by virtuoso Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia. It featured on his 1973 album, Fuente y caudal. A Bulería, it is generally played in C phrygian, with a capo on the third fret, based on the C 7 flat 9 chord. It has been played by Grisha Goryachev.


Jazz Forum cite "Cepa Andaluza" and "Entre dos Aguas" as among his most popular compositions, both appearing on his 1973 album Fuente y caudal.[1] Mel Bay Publications describe it as a "magnificent bulerías", and said to "compare the palmas patterns on it to those on any bulerías from the CD "Cositas Buenas" (2004)."[2] Richard Chapman and Eric Clapton describe Cepa Andaluza as "exciting", and note that the track was originally an afterthought, and was "set to change Paco's career."[3] Guitar International noted that the recording of Cepa Andaluza has "the aire of a juerga", with Paco "swinging to the jaleo and palmas on a track."[4]
