During the 19th century, the very same show these Chileans keep, and that display in Germany, was invented and commonly seen in Europe. For Germans, this was like watching something from a time machine. The music, though, is Chilean. These dancers are known like "chinchineros" in Chile, and are considered a patrimony.

Mate, I realise that English is not your first language, but, I'm sorry, I can't make any sense out of your post.

Ok. Let me explain. Germans and other Europeans invented these street organs in the 18th or 19th century. But with time they forgot they existed. However, in Chile we still have artisans that are able to build and maintain them, and they keep alive a spectacle that was probably quite common in Europe in the 19th century.

That's why I said for Germans was like to see people coming in a time machine. By the way, do you have something similar in Australia?

I've not seen or heard of any street organs in Australia, but that doesn't mean that they don't exist.

I think it's probably more of a European thing, or countries that were once European colonies.

Chile was an European colony once, and the European influence has been strong up to this day.

I guessed (wrongly) that this was going to be an article on the continued Chilean practice of goose-stepping in military parades - another interesting adoption from Allemania.

We are proud of our goose-steppers, actually. And indeed, Germany has always been a loved country in Chile.

There is a strong German colony somewhere in that region - it might be Chile, I can't recall, but there's a Germanic village in a mountain valley somewhere (they speak German too).

Wasn't that in Brazil? A small country town in the mountains populated by ex Nazi officers and their families?

I saw it on a doco about one of the top Nazis who was captured and returned to Europe for the War Crimes Commission, was it Mengele?

Maybe in Chile but not by indian people. The German Colonies are in the south and in the Araucanian Province, in Villa Rica by example.
