Come light up the night tonight with LA DESCARGA! ✨🕯️✨🕯️✨🕯️
La Descarga is a tribute to the music and dance traditions of the Afro-Colombian regions from the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Colombia.
Light your candle at the Fiesta and start the end of year celebrations!
To the sound of the drums and the rhythms of Afro-Colombian dance this night will heat up your soul. LA DESCARGA has prepared a special night to gather and celebrate light, romance and remember past times when candles were used to illuminate humanity’s life and celebrations.
In Colombian culture, Little Candles' Day (Día de las Velitas) is held on December 7, a most observed traditional holidays in Colombia. People place candles and paper lanterns everywhere they can be seen. It marks the start of the end of the year celebrations.
During cumbia dance, women playfully wave their long skirts while holding a candle, and men dance behind the women with one hand behind their back and the other hand either holding a hat, putting it on, or taking it off.
Candles have been used for more than 5,000 years and La Descarga invites you to light another candle, dance and remember. Expect a ritualistic Afro-Colombian rhythmic and dance explosion with special guests and heaps of good fun.
