Chamarrita can refer to two different types of music and dance, one from the Azores in Portugal and one from the Rio de la Plata littoral region in northern Argentina, Uruguay, and southern Brazil.

Azorean Chamarrita[edit]

The chamarrita from the Azores is a dance to a 3/4 rhythm traditionally played on the fiddle with or without accompaniment.

Littoral Chamarrita[edit]

The chamarrita from the Rio de la Plata region has been suggested to descend from the Azorean chamarrita, but there is no conclusive evidence of this.
