Sones de Tarima: Guerrero

El Puerto de Acapulco

The suite is inspired by the multiethnic communities in the state of Guerrero including African, Mestizo, and South American. The music for La zamba chucha has its roots in the zamba from Chile and Argentina. When these dances arrived in Tixtla, they inherited the vigorous Mexican footwork. The handkerchief is a key Andean imprint and it indicates the dancer’s energy and intentions.
