Chacarera

I was born in Argentina, and I fell in love with our culture while travelling throughout our country.
Then I studied a degree in folkloric dance at the IUNA, and for some years now I have been doing introductory workshops in Barcelona, as well as dancing in different projects.

The chacarera is one of the dances that is still alive today in the Argentine folklore, and more alive than ever as it is danced in every party, in many parts of the country and new songs are still being composed. For me it is an amalgam of cultures made music, an excuse to enjoy dancing with another person.
