Experiencing Interruptions?

Puka Wayko

Can you imagine what it would be like to dance with the devil to the rhythm of a village band and ask him how he inaugurated the rebellion in the Andean moors. From January 1 to 6, in the Píllaro canton, in the province of Tungurahua in Ecuador, a festival full of legends, traditions and music is celebrated.
