There is a typical dance at the Estancia tour Buenos Aires with folcloric music : the popular “Chacarera”

The Folklorica movement in Argentina re-introduced a wide variety of traditional dances to the Argentine public, including chacarera, a folk dance characterized by its cheerful rhythm.

The name comes from the word “chacra” meaning “farm.”

Although its origins are unclear, chacarera started to appear around 1850 in Argentina’s rural northwest before eventually finding its way into the cities.

By the early 1900s, this dance arrived in Buenos Aires, but was unable to compete with the popular tango. In the 1960s it gained popularity again as musicians revitalized the dance’s traditional music.

 

Chacarera is a couple’s dance, but the two dancers dance independently of each other, not touching.

 

If more than one couple dances it at the same time, the couples do not interact with each other.

In the Estancia Buenos Aires women usually wear alpargatas shoes and long flowing dresses.

They often wear their hair in one or two braids.

Men usually wear boots or alpargatas, baggy pants, shirts of any color,  hats or “boinas”, and silk scarves tied at the neck.
