  Lake Titicaca and the party of Candelaria (PC6)

Festival der Jungfrau Candelaria in Puno


The city Puno which is located at the banks of the Titicaclake at 3,870 meters above sea level and is during 18 days (From the 1st of February till the 18th of February) the folcloric capital of America. In the festival partipate around 200 musicgroups and dansers. The first 9 days the butlers (that are ordered to organize the festival) decorate the church and listen to the mass. Afterwards they go to different banquets and to fire displays.

The main day, the 2nd of February, the virgin is carried towards the city in a very colorful procession. This is the moment that all musicians are going to play and all dansers are going to dance throught the streets of Puno. The festival is linked to the pre-Hispanic agricultural cycles of sowing and harvesting, as well as mining activities in the region. It is the result of a blend of respectful Aymara gaiety and ancestral Quechua seriousness.

The dance of the demons, or diablada, the main dance of the festival, was allegedly dreamed up by a group of miners trapped down a mine who, in their desperation, resigned their souls to the Virgen de la Candelaria. The dancers, blowing zampoña pan-pipes and clad in spectacular costumes and outlandish masks, make their offerings to the earth goddess Pachamama. The most impressive masks, for their terrifying aspect, are those of the deer fitted with long twisted horns similar to the Devil, and Jacancho, the god of minerals. During the farewell, or cacharpari, the dancers who fill the streets finally head to the cemetery to render homage to the dead.
