Currently quite popular in France and Italy, this dance is a descendant of the original 19th century Mazurka, which has been blended with the aesthetic and sensibilities of social Tango.
In Italy, they call the dance Mazurka, and use the name Mazurka Clandestina to refer to clandestine, un-permitted Mazurka dance events in public squares. Here, we use the name Mazurka Clandestina to distinguish the dance from it's more energetic ancestor.
Here are a few of our favorite Mazurka Clandestina tunes, arranged by tempo.
