Perreo a lo peruano

I normally associate really dirrrrty dancing with Brazilian baile funk, or with reggaeton… but as of last night, I was proven that Peru is right up there with their phenomenon that is "El Perreo Chacalonero".

Friend of Remezcla, Alessio (and proud limeño–and perhaps a proud chacalonero himself, though he wouldn’t fess up to it), was kind enough to share this YouTube, er, gem with us:

Just another night at the club, you know.

And now to add to the fun: Spongebob, Winnie the Pooh and others perreando chacalonero-estyle…

Hmmm. Anybody know what kind of music this is? (Asks my inner ethnomusicologist.)
