5 typical dances of our folklore
Music is a great 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 taking people to the track for a long time, all over the country. Today we want to introduce you to 5 of the most representative dances of our land.
1) The sky
It’s a Creole dance that you dance as a loose couple. This one choreography adopted modalities typical of picaresque and cheerful dances, such as the chuttering and the ingenious movements.
The chacarera is another of the typical dances of our folklore. They also dance as a loose couple and, in it, the zapateo is a constant. For a long time, it has made the whole of Argentina dance, especially Santiago del Estero. Of this dance there is a variant called double chacarera.
3) The Zamba
The zamba is a dance that is danced as a loose and independent couple. The handkerchief has an important role in that, through it, dancers express moods, suggestions or desires. The man celebrates the woman tenderly and she accepts, although she dodges it. After falling in love, there comes the triumph of the man, who the crown putting on the handkerchief.
4) The malambo
Malambo lacks lyrics: the music of guitars accompanies this dance performed solely by men. The dancer shows off with a zapping, a planing (rubbing a sole of a foot against a floor), a rattling (blow with a bruska and a spur) or blossoms. His feet barely touch the ground.
5) The pericone
The pericone is a typical dance of the Pampas plain. Is known as “dance of four”, since that is the minimum number of couples needed and, also, because the choreography of primitive dance was composed of only four figures: demand or mirror, last or joyful, chain and sky. To each of these figures correspond to several different movements, which are executed from according to the orders given, as the case may be, by the singer or the “cane man”.
