Zamba: tradition and seduction
Let’s start at the beginning. Originally, the word zamba was used in the colony to name the mestizo descendants of Indian and Black. As a dance, it was created to seduce the zambs, and hence its name comes from. Both dance and music are called this. It runs in the northeastern region of the country and even came to be proposed as an Argentine national dance.
The zamba is danced as a couple, performing various figures with his hands and face as a mimic. The man performs a loving ritual to seduce the woman, while she flirts and refuses her with the help of a handkerchief . Couples dance loose, but the seduction is complete and ends up uniting the shy lovers.
