Concurso de Tinku 2017
Presented by the Pro Bolivian Committee
- November 19, 2017 at 4:30 pm
Tinku is a folkloric dance from the Andean region of Potosi, Bolivia, that means “encounter.” It’s a yearly tradition where thousands of villagers gather in the towns of Potosi for several days to take part of this celebration. Two opposite groups come together one called, “Aransayas” (from the high lands) and the other called “Urinsayas” (from the low lands) for a combat-like gathering. There one side is left standing as the winner to celebrate life and appreciate mother earth, the “Pachamana”.
This folkloric dance from Bolivia mesmerizes the audience by the colorful outfits, the thundering music, and the lively dancing.
$25 VIP, $20 adult ages 12+, $15 children ages 2-11,
