|PERU (Feb 2016): February is the time for very many |
processions and festivals in Huaraz (Ancash Region).
Here I've just added example of festivals from each from Colombia, Chile and Peru to try and illustrate how much colour will surround you at these festivities.
Colombia - Pasto in Nariño Region: This is one of the very famous carnivals in the world "Carnaval de los Negros y Blancos" - massive and incredibly realistic floats, hundreds of dancers and musicians and the constant clouds of talcum powder, foam and painted faces.
|COLOMBIA (Jan 2016): One group in a procession during the "Carnaval de los Negros y Blancos" in a nearby (to Pasto) village called Chachagüí.|
|COLOMBIA (May 2015): Fiestas Patronales in the village of Chachagüí near Pasto (Nariño Region)|
|CHILE (June2016): dancer at the Machaq Mara|
celebrations - Aymara New Year.
|CHILE (June 2016): children in traditional Aymara costumes for the celebration |
processions for Machaq Mara - Aymara New Year.
|PERU (Feb 2016): the colourful costumes have some|
mind-boggling fine and intricate work on them.
|PERU (Feb 2016): the array of colours that will leave you speechless - |
these dancers are just constantly moving and dancing to the bands accompanying them.
