This is the first of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by two traditional Argentine dances, the Gato and the Huayno. The Gato is originally from the Cuyo region in the West and North-West of Argentina. Some musicologists suggest that the Gato originated in Peru, but opinions among experts are divided. The Huayno, a traditional dance with strong pentatonic roots, originated in the Andes region.
