LA MÁS GRANDE EXPRESION DEL FOLKLORE
CIUDAD DE ORURO
CARNAVAL DE ORURO "FIESTA DE LA VIRGEN DEL “SOCAVÓN"
Mes de Febrero
- main Day of the Carnival.
It is the main day of the carnival of
Oruro, in which we will be able to appreciate
of the wonderful and colorful festivity to the
virgin of the "Tunnel" and to be part
of itself, enjoying each moment to the music's
of different dances of remote origins compass
like the Diablada, the Morenada, the Tobas, the
Llamerada, the Phujllay, among other, they are
revived by 30.000 dancers that participate of
the party, with suits specially designed by expert
Bolivian embroiderers, with diversity of colors
and unique shades of each region. This ancestral
folklore, in its true essence, is born in the
myth, in those beliefs that are transmitted by
generations accentuating an ingrained blended
faith between paganism and Catholic religion.
The biggest representation in that folklore is the Diablada that is a dance representing the fight among the good and the bad. The devil is the born myth of the "Uncle" of the miners, it is the one that brings good or bad luck. In opposition it meets the Catholic religion with the Candlemas's Virgin that appeared in the tunnels of Oruro, good known today as the "Virgin of the Tunnel". in spite of the fact that the carnival lasts several days, the most interesting part resides in the splendid one "Entrance" in honor to the Virgin
