During the festive cycle of the saint (December 25 to January 6) there are two distinctive performance characteristics: 1) There are a number of devotional positions that the devout take up for a minimum of 3 years and sometimes for life: Queens, second lieutenant, lieutenant, the queen´s companion and camba’rangá or those who disguise as the saint. 2) The music played is the traditional common music of Corrientes (chamamé, valseado and cumbia) but adding the drum, which is considered “the voice of the Saint”, and therefore plays a central role.
