Joropo Dance in Colombia

This footage of joropo dance was shot by the Colombia curatorial team when they were documenting the cowboy traditions of the Orinoco Plains. The dancers, Arnulfo Pinto García and Magdalena Plazas Lugo, are show here in Cumaral, Meta. They are performing daily at the Festival with Grupo Cabrestero. They will also be performing an evening concert on Friday, July 8, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the Al Son Que Me Toquen Stage.

Video produced and videotaped by Cristina Diaz-Carrera.
