|Bolivia Marka Dance Group|
The 10 piece charismatic Bolivia Marka Dance Group presents a colourful, loud, bold and brassy performance of exotic and rarely seen dances from the different regions of Bolivia - the folkloric capital of South America. The dancers dress in a spectacular display of colourful and fantastically imaginative traditional costumes from the famous Oruro Carnival. This carnival has recently been listed by The United Nations as a ‘MASTERPIECE OF THE ORAL AND INTANGIBLE HERITAGE OF HUMANITY'
The famous Oruro Carnival is a festival, which takes place every year. It is a centuries-old ritual and involves thousands of dancers dressed in fabulous and elaborate costumes.
Bolivia Marka Dance Group was formed 7 years ago By Brisbane based Jaime Moscoso along with his two daughters, Mindy and Romina. They have a deep desire to share their ancestral and cultural heritage and are very passionate and proud of their culture.
This year in February on Australian national television SBS screened a documentary about Multiculturalism in Australia featuring Jaime and his Daughters. The documentary featured how they keep their culture alive by performing at many festivals and ceremonies in and around Brisbane and Queensland including the largest Australian Multicultural festival Woodford which has an attendance of 150,000 people.
The dances that Bolivia Marka performs are the Devil's Dance, Tobas, Tinku, Morenada and Saya. The Dances are presented as an offering of gratitude and thanksgiving to ‘Pachamama', the earth-mother. The dances are interlaced with threads of both Christian and Indian myths, fables, deities and traditions .
The Dance that Bolivia Marka will perform at the concert of Zulma Yugar in Sydney on September 9 th will be the Saya/ Caporales.
