A Dance Celebration in Cusco

dsc_1084

Walking around Cusco is like opening a door to the past, where the streets, ancient ruins, food, and the people, preserve tradition and tell its story tracing back to the Inca Empire and Spanish conquests. In the heart of the city is Plaza de Armas, the square that at one point was marked the center of the Incas, and it is still to this day, a focal place for cultural celebrations. I was fortunate to witness the colorful and lively dance festival.

Each group proudly represented a different region with their own choreography and custom designs. The vibrant colors of their garments matched the lively music that was played.

Here are some photographs I took.

Saludos,
