This is the eighth of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by two traditional Argentine dances, the Huella and the Takirari. The Huella, originally from the southern region of Argentina, is a local interpretation of the European 18th-century Minuet and Gavotte. The Takirari on the other hand originated in the provinces of Jujuy and Chaco in the North of Argentina and is popular in some parts of Bolivia, too.
Duration 3½ minutes
