CUADRO CHOCUANO – Perfomance

CUADRO CHOCUANO 

– Fusion Desenfrenada 

The “Cuadro Chocuano” is a dance of European origin, brought to Colombia by the colonialists. It combines the rhythms of the mazurka, the polka, the contradanza and the jota. The Afro-American slaves imitated these social dances in their free time to taunt their masters. This fusion evolved into this folkloric dance from the Pacific region of Colombia.

The dances consist of new and lively steps, clapping, shouting, couple, and group dances, sometimes a love quarrel or conquest. It is a joking and joyful dance.

Fusion Desenfrenada is a Colombian-Peruvian folklore group whose mission is to present the musical traditions of these two countries and to promote gender freedom. In this context, they would like to present the “Cuadro Chocuano” to honor Afro-Colombian roots, commemorate the victims of slavery and make marginalized cultures visible.
