"Classical huapango is characterized by a complex rhythmic structure mixing duple and triple meters
which reflect the intricate steps of the dance . When the players sing
( in duo , on a falsetto tone )
the violin stops, and the zapateo
( heels rolling on the floor ) softens.
The huapango is danced by men
and women as couples; the men sing, the women do not.
A very popular huapango is El querreque in which two singers alternate pert and funny repartees"
