With just a few days left of 2018, we couldn’t let pass the opportunity to remember the great times we’ve had in Yo Amo Barquisimeto. We have grown through the culture of the Twilight City; we’ve danced to its music, painted our days with the colors of its artists, and even tasted the flavor of our roots. It was a great year, and since we don’t want you to think otherwise, let’s remember everything we discovered through YAB’s top 12 articles.
Carmen Gisela Judez Zubillaga, best known as Cachela, has dedicated her entire life in dancing between castanets, heels, claps, and flamenco singers. Her journey included Madrid, where she fell in love with design, which ended up in the creation of Cachela Moda Flamenca. Now, her production takes place in the US along with Venezuela. We introduce you to a mix of passions, as well as an example of effort, love, and perseverance.
The beautiful part of dancing is how versatile it can be, and traditional Venezuelan dances are proof of this. From a hundred of them, YAB is here to introduce you four of them: Los Giros de San Benito, a January dance with indigenous roots; Las Turas, celebrated in Lara and Falcón during late September; El Pájaro Guarandol, an amazing poetry and dancing performance during December; and El Mare-Mare, a dance in honor of the deceased. Come along and dance with us!
