This is the way they dance in Veracruz. It's called the "Lilongo".
Panchito


Lilongo is a song written by Felipe Gil in the style of Son Jarocho, first recorded in the United States in 1938. In Disney media, it is notably featured in the 1944 film, The Three Caballeros. The song is entirely sung in Spanish.

Background

The song is sung when when Panchito Pistoles, José Carioca, and Donald Duck arrive at the state of Veracruz in Mexico where they explore how the people dance in Veracruz. Arriving, Panchito and José encourage Donald to dance in with the people dancing there to which Donald manages to join in the dance to which after having fun, the song ends when the magic sarape arrives as it takes the Caballeros to the state of Acapulco much to Donald wanting to dance more with the people at Veracruz.
