So what is a Chinchinero? Basically it is an urban street performer. Usually a man or young boy, who plays a bass drum-type percussion instrument with long drumsticks strapped to his back which also involves a rope with a noose tied around the performer's foot to play this improvised instrument. Said instrument has been invented and produced informally and can carry any rhythm or melody.
The Chinchinero often works with an organillero, street organ player, possessing a hand-operated street organ. While the organ is played the Chinchinero plays and dances whatever it is playing - foxtrot, waltz, tango, or cueca.
