This is the sixth of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by the Argentine Payada, which is originally from the La Pampa and southern regions. The Payada is an improvised recitation in rhyme, performed by two gauchos, competing against each other in a vocal, public duel. While singing, the singers accompany themselves by playing their respective guitars.
