The saraband (from the Spanish 'zarabanda') is a dance that apparently appeared in the Spanish colonies during the 16th and 17th centuries, before moving back across the ocean and being adapted by European courts as a slow dance. Though at first considered somewhat indecent, it was later adopted by baroque composers as a standard movement in suites and variations.
