Costumes and celebrations: August

The photo

Puquio, Ayacucho celebrations

In Puquio - Ayacucho - Perú, people celebrate a festival in February. Most of them are people of older people: they dance all along the city and go around the population. They celebrate the arrival of the rainy season in order to grow fields and provide food to the community.

Of course they speak Qechua the native language of the Incas in The Tawantinsuyo empire.
