Dancing with Pacha Mama - La Paz, Bolivia

Every region has its own little twist on dance and song and within each region there are village variables that speak to the unique experience of the locale. If on the Altiplano (high plains), the dazzling sun will speed the rhythm. If on a mountain slope and the morning sun arrives late and leaves early, the cold will leave a chilled mark on the tone of a village’s declaration of self. These differences tell a tale of life lived on a personal level in relation to earth and sky and embody folk expression in a land of contrasts. ¡Jallalla Bolivia!
