She chose to flee the country after that incident along with many other folkloric artists who were frustrated by their inability to perform and feared for their lives.

A new generation was introduced to the genre, and to artists who had been unable to release their music in their own country for almost a decade. Since then, folklore music has regained its standing as an essential part of the Argentine national identity. Argentina has a patchwork of traditional dances covering its large territory. Among the many different types of Argentine folk music, the most well known in Buenos Aires are probably chacarera, chamame and zamba —not to be confused with the Brazilian samba.

The music has hints of polka and is danced in pairs. The music comes from a mix of African, indigenous and, to a lesser extent, colonial roots. Dancers form two lines, and partners stand facing each other. Partners move forward and back, in clockwise circles, and meet in the middle, always keeping their torsos turned towards each other and their eyes focused on those of their partner.
