FESTIVITIES CALENDAR
2005


From the highland until the warm lands of the forest, the magic of the local festivities disturbs the cities and towns of Bolivia, generating an authentic recreation whirlwind, in which the Andean music, dance and rituals are, part of the processions, the prayers and the incense smothers.

There is not even one corner of Bolivia where the carnival or a religious festivity is not celebrated. During the celebration, one can feel people's warmness and appreciate the beautiful choreographies and wardrobes of the typical dancers and the impulse of the musical notes.

Among all the festivities, the carnival is, without any doubt, the most important in the tourist calendar. The celebration seems to be endless, people invade the streets to watch the dance of numerous folkloric bands that offer a wonderful show of music and varied movements.

Among the most attractive and showy dances is the famous Diablada, where groups of "devils" (men and women wearing frightening showy masks) carry out jumps and twirls in a simulated fight between the good ones and the bad ones.
In Oruro -the folkloric capital city of Bolivia- those "devils" surrender cult to the Virgin of El Socavón, that according to the legend, defeated to the armies of toads, vipers, ants and condors that were sent by the wicked Huari (evil force) to destroy the city.

Visiting Bolivia is to get in touch with history and tradition. It is to know how to appreciate the ancestral inheritance of the tiahuanacos and the incas that beyond building archaeological monuments, left invaluable cultural wealth.
