How to use "Saraband" in context?

The term "saraband" comes from the Old German word "sarie," referring to the peasant women who often accompanied minstrels and other traveling performers. Saraband songs often consisted of satirical and dark lyrics, and were often aimed at ridiculing the aristocracy. The earliest known reference to a saraband is from a 14th century manuscript, and the tradition seems to have died out by the early 16th century.

Following the French Revolution, saraband music began to be revived in the mid-1800s.
