Music is an excellent way to get to know a culture. The chords, the sounds, the voices... but also the dances. Our folklore has different typical dances that have been bringing people to the track for a long time, all around the country. our land.
It's a creole dance that is danced as a loose couple. This choreography adopted modalities typical of picaresque and cheerful dances, such as castaneteos and ingenious movements.
The chacarera is another of the typical dances of our folklore. It is also danced as a loose couple and, in it, the zapateo is a constant. For a long time, he has been dancing all over Argentina, especially Santiago del Estero . Of this dance there is a variant called double chacarera.
The zamba is a dance that is danced as a loose and independent couple. The handkerchief has an important role since, through it, dancers express moods, suggestions or desires. The man celebrates the woman tenderly and she accepts, although he dodges it. After falling in love with her, comes the triumph of the man, who put the crown on her handkerchief.
Malambo lacks lyrics: the music of guitars accompanies this dance performed only by men. The dancer shines with the shoe, the brushed one (rub the sole of the foot against the floor), the peal (hit with the taco and spur) or the floreos. His feet barely touch the ground.
The pericon is a typical dance of the pampas plain. It is known as “dancing four”, since that is the minimum number of couples needed and, also, because the choreography of primitive dance consisted of only four figures: demand or mirror, postrera or joyful, chain and sky. Each of these figures correspond to several different movements, which are executed according to the orders given, as the case may be, by the singer or the “batonero”.
