Chamarrita can refer to two different types of music and dance, one from the Azores and one from the Rio de la Platta littoral region in northern Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil.
The chamarrita from the Azores is a dance to a 3/4 rhythm traditionally played on the fiddle with or without accompaniment.
Last winter we attended Chamarrita classes and now it is back again. Come summer time, we will be able to participate in the dance held during the festas. It is a lot of fun and a great work out too. Many young ones attended this weeks group - take a look.
