“Festival of Devotion” is a Bolivian power parade

Americas Now

We travel to a Bolivian celebration that fuses Catholic tradition with Aymara customs. The Festival del Gran Poder – or Festival of the Great Power – is a huge celebration that takes place every year in May or June.

In La Paz, dancers, musicians and folklore artists gather to revel and request protection from the higher being of their choice.

Take a look at these images of Bolivia’s folkloric festival.
