This is a traditional dance from North-west Argentina and Bolivia. This sheet music can be performed by many choirs, but you should be careful to the rhythm because the 3/4 time is often associated with 6/8. You can accompany on the guitar, charango, bombo legüero, kenas (Andean flute), transverse flute, or with string instruments and drum. Jean-Michel Cayre was born in 1949 in Lyon.
