Vals Criollo - Peruvian Music and Dances

This dance has its participants holding hands in a half-embrace, performing intertwined steps in a style recreated by Lima inhabitants from the Viennese waltzes.

The Creole variation originated in the nineteenth century and spread to the urban middle class as a synthesis of the romantic nostalgia of the criollo class for the old Lima that was fast changing.

Backing instruments include guitar, cajón and the quijada, plus a lead vocalist and backing singers.
