16 Andean Dancer Wearing Carnival Costume in Arica, Chile

The music and dance in northern Chilean towns such as Arica are influenced by Peru, the Andean region of Bolivia and the Incas. One delightful result is the Andean dance called Baile Andino. Wearing colorful carnival costumes, two rows of young men and women play simple musical instruments while performing erratic moves in a strict cadence. The result is an upbeat, toe-tapping and engaging kaleidoscope of color and activity.
