Waiting for Inti Raymi at Parc de la Trinitat
You don't have to be in Ecuador to thank Pachamama and the Sun God for their generosity . Over a dozen people meet up every weekend in Parc de la Trinitat to join in the traditional dances of this South American country. They are members of the folkloric dance troupe from the Taller Ecuatoriano de Arte y Cultura de Barcelona (Ecuadorian Barcelona Art and Culture Workshop), famous for being the most representative group in Catalonia. Nora Caizapanta, the association's general coordinator, shares some of the most ancient cultural manifestations of this Andean people with us, a people who have such a strong presence in our city today.
