Description
While visiting the north of Chile, I tried to capture the essence of different religious celebrations. Ayquina is the first of my project.

  • El Carnaval de Ayquina en el norte de Chile, es una festividad de raigambre prehispánica asociada a la fertilidad de la tierra. Es una fiesta sincrética que se mezcla con la celebración de la aparición de la Virgen de la Guadalupe, quién según la tradición, se manifestó a un niño de la localidad de Tiara.
    Hoy en día se celebra a la Virgen durante cinco días con cantos y bailes de distintas escuelas y bandas culturales que vienen de lugares tan lejos como Perú y Bolivia.

    The Ayquina Carnival in the north of Chile, is a religious festivity of prehispanic origins related to the Earth’s fertility. It’s a syncretic event that mixes its origins with the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe to a shepherd boy from the small town of Tiara. The celebration lasts for five days during which different bands from as far as Peru and Bolivia share their happiness with dances and chants.
