Thread Name: Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
Though "Chiapanecas" can refer to people of both sexes, isn't the traditional Chiapanecas dance done just by women? I.e., does "Chiapanecas" as in the dance/tune title mean "people of Chiapas" or "ladies of Chiapas?"
