Transcript of Los Machetes
Los Machetes is a popular folk dance from the Jalisco region of Mexico.
How it's performed
Los Machetes works best when performed with partners moving side by side in a circular formation. This dance is performed to music by a Mariachi orchestra and has a great sense of joy and energy.
This dance tells the story of cutting down sugar can during the harvest. Los Machetes was created by Mexican farm workers who spent a great amount of time perfecting the use of the tool, the machete, for harvesting. Traditionally, real machetes are used while performing this dance.
