Chamamé, the most original and multicultural dance
Chamamé is the most popular dance on the coast, it is a cultural practice that transmits energy and joy when listening or dancing. The foundations of this folk dance are Guarani, but other cultural branches have inoculated their genes in this dance. Sapucai is a cry of Guaraní culture. The first influence is ours, the very one that gave it the original or aboriginal rhythm. The passage of time added elements of the Jesuit, Spanish and, in large part, German culture, adding rhythm with its accordions and bandoneons.
The provinces where the chamamé will never be missing are Cores, Misiones, Chaco, Formosa, Santa Fe and Entre Ríos. This does not imply that this dance is an exclusivity of them, being part of the national folklore, the dance has been installed in several regions. It already has festivals in other provinces that do not belong to the coastal region. Which indicates that, far from being a regional cultural, it has become something national.
History has had an important relationship with the chamamé and folklore in general. After the last dictatorship he was reborn, a change in their lyrics, but not in their essence. Music has always had a unwavering commitment to the peoples, and the chamamé was no exception. He sapucai is a cry of jubilation typical of the chamamé, without the cry one could say which is not chamamé.
The process of forming the chamamé is centenary, but the dance and singing we know has been formed almost 100 years ago. We could say that Transito Cocomarola, Ernesto Montiel, Isaco Abitbol and Tarragó Ros have been the pioneers. This branch of folklore marked the path and the main characteristics of the chamamé. Taking this dance and culture from one region to almost the whole country.
