Small flyers all over town promoted the performance of a group of dancers from Cordoba, Argentina. In a small outdoor venue the show began with great pathos: Argentine’s flag was carried in, we all rose for the country’s hymn, the directors were introduced and the Columbian people praised and thanked.
In the meantime, the young dancers waiting for their gig simply started to dance next to the stage. It kind of set the mood for what followed: a top performance of folkloristic dances from the Cordoba region presented in a firework of emotions and devotion that brought tears in your eyes.
The show ended in an invitation towards the audience to join a rather funny and easy dance, a “chacarera”. When we walked away we felt moved and euphoric, the spirit of the young dancers had definitely touched us.
