In Technocharro*1, the artist invites a group of traditional Salamancan dancers to dance, in their local rehearsal room, and accompanied by their teacher to the sound of a techno session, played by two DJ's. Overcoming their initial resistance to join in unison to such a different type of music, the dancers end up finding familiar rhythms and pulsations, to which they adapt their steps.

*1 "Charro" is the adjective used to describe not only something or someone native to the Province of Salamanca, but also to the traditional Salamanca folk musicians and dancers.
