    Visiting the church of Uquia

    Church of Uquia

    Uquia is a very small village (one street and some houses) with a wonderful little church known for its paintings from the Cuzco school! It took just one minute on the road to Humahuaca (some km away) and it is worth to know more about this art style and to see one example (if you haven't done it in Jujuy - see this page for more info about it)

    This little boy wanted to say a little poem or song on Humahuaca in order to have a candy or a piece of money...and once again, we did not resist...we did not understand everything but it was quite nice actually ;-)

    Enjoying the Santa Barbara procession/concert

    Andean panpipes group

    At the end of the afternoon the day we stayed in Humahuaca, we heard some traditionnal music...we saw a podium and people fixing a sono...we asked what was the occasion and we were told that it was for the procession and party in the honor of the virgen Santa Barbara of the neighborhood that would take place a little bit later in the evening. We went to eat and then came back to see the party! All the people of the village were there to celebrate! There was a miss and then a procession of the virgen around the neighborhood accompanied with local musician (andean flute and drums) and then a concert and dance performance of the children of the school of the neighborhood. We could not dream a better occasion to experiment the traditionnal folkmusic of the Quechua indians!!! We saw children dancing a sort of "Chacarera" (traditionnal argentinian dance) with handkerchief and a concert of a andean flutes. Amazing! Un unforgettable moment!!
