This is the second of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by two traditional Argentine dances, the Carnavalito and the Chamame. The Carnavalito originated in the Altiplano region of the Andes, which includes the provinces of Jujuy and Salta. The Carnavalito’s popularity extends to other provinces in the North of Argentina. The Chamame is originally from the North-East and the Mesopotamia region of the country.
