The sarabande is a slow triple-metred dance first mentioned in Central America having been popular in the Spanish colonies in the 16th century before moving back across the Atlantic to Spain where it was duly banned for obscenity. The word later came to represent the traditional movement of a suite in the baroque period, whose form was revived in the 20th century by Satie and Debussy as well as such unlikely composers such as Britten and Vaughan-Williams.
