Argentine Zamba
is nothing like it’s Caribbean namesake that shares it’s name. This is an Argentine construct through and through. It’s a slower partner dance that is done to ‘flowy’ music, where the partnership is trying to entice the other. It’s a beautiful and sensual dance that doesn’t get enough play. The dance is insanely simple to do, but does require a long ‘scarf’ to ‘wave’ to your partner or more to the point to enwrap them in it! This dance you won’t see that often outside Argentina, and very infrequently even then. There are only a few or singular Milongas in Buenos Aires that actually promotes and dances this on a regular basis, one of which happens at La Catedral.
