La Peña del Colorado

Buenos Aires
Argentina 1425's insider take:

Lying far outside the complex rules and social restrictions of tango, Argentina's folk music, or música folclórica, reemerged to a new popularity during the 1960s. A blending of the waltzes, mazurkas, and polkas of Eastern Europe with elements of indigenous and gaucho cultures resulted in robust rhythms such as the chamamé and the chacarera. Closely associated with rural life, the traditional dances are best seen at a rustic peña, or folk music jamboree, but this popular Palermo music hall provides a glimpse of the genre's sentiment and nostalgia.—Colin Barraclough
