El Origin

This dance originated from the country of Bolivia, from an Aymara tradition. At first, people would come together and begin their festivities by doing this dance. To start the dance, the dancers would form into a circle and chant. The men would then to proceed to "fight" dance and the women would sometimes join in this as well. Large gatherings of this type of dance are held in the first weeks of May, lasting 2-3 days, and are held in Potosí. This is done to symbolize mother nature, with any blood shed representing sacrifice to harvest and fertility.
