The Danza Rhythm is a 6/8 which should be played with accented shakes on the 1 and 4 of each bar.
For this rhythm, we need to mark the number 1 with a downward motion by the left hand, with the exception of when starting which is done by both maracas. The patter is as follows:
After you make a start, the next bar will need to be executed only with the left hand in a downwards motion as opposed to starting with both maracas.
Just as with the Joropo Llanero, we can also make use of the escobillao in each of the 4 bars, the pattern to do so with the escobillao is as follows:
