This is the fourth of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by two traditional dances, the Cumbia Argentina and the Chamarrita. The Cumbia, sometimes called Cumbia Villera, has its origins in the slums of Buenos Aires and has Colombian roots. The Cumbia Villera is intrinsically related to the well-known Murga, a celebratory and very popular form of a street dance containing Cumbia-related rhythms, usually performed during the carnival season as well as during some national festivities in Argentina. The Chamarrita is a musical form originally from the Rio de la Plata region.
Duration 3 minutes
