La Marinera : La danza del Peru : The music starts and they watch one to the other to the eyes, through the distance that measures the assumed challenge. She, the always secure female, always provocative, always first, raises her handkerchief and she waves it with grace smiling to the love and to the life. She knows, in its brief and slowed down stroll, all the enchantment that the man wishes to conquer.

Peruvian Times : Peru’s Foreign Relations Ministry announced Wednesday that it has begun legal action to revoke a Peruvian woman’s trademark registration of a popular Peruvian dance in Chile. Cecilia Gurmendi, a former Marinera national champion in Peru, registered “Marinera” with Chile’s Trademark Registry in the Department of Industrial Property in November 2007.

Wikipedia : The origin of the Marinera is generally traced back to the Zamacueca. Nevertheless, there are various other theories about where it comes from. Traditional accompaniment for the dance is provided by a cajón, guitars and bugles.

TripAtlas : Ever since the 1960s, during the month of January, in the city of Trujillo a ‘National Contest of Marinera’ is held.
