Punta Motz

Punta Motz is one of the Soinu Zaharrak decribed by Gipuzkoan dance master and author Juan Inazio Iztueta. The Soinu Zaharrak or old melodies are a set of dances described by Iztueta. They are complicated because of their irregular rhythms and cannot be danced without memorizing the music of each one. Within each unique melody and rhythm the dancer can improvise, but only with steps that fit within that particular musical structure. Punta Motz consists of 21 measures divided in two parts. The first part has 8 beats and is repeated twice. The second part has 13 beats distributed the following way: 4, 4, 5.
