The friendly, busy and showy carnival or carnivalito is an ancient collective dance. With primitive figures, he danced in America since before the discovery. Owner of extraordinary vitality, he has endured through centuries. It is still practiced spontaneously today in northwestern Argentina and Bolivia , both in its ancient and modern forms.
Carnivalito is an autochthonous American dance, born in pre-Hispanic times in the domains of the Inca . Primitively it was danced as a collective dance, without couples, with the few figures common to almost all archaic dances: rounds, rows, streamers, etc. The primitive forms of carnivalite are also practiced in Jujuy , Salta , Catamarca and La Rioja .
In many cities of Salta and Jujuy people currently dance in couples. The modern or salon carnivalito is full of colorful and lively figures that spread the desire to dance. Meanwhile, the orchestra of quenas, charangos, guitars and bass drum (or box or “tinya”) floods the air with the cheerful typical melodies.
