Concurso de Tinku

Presented by Comite Pro Bolivia

  • June 25, 2016 at 5:00 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.
