Kullawada - Oruro Carnival Dance
The Kullawada dance recalls the knitter ritual. It is a festive dance popular among the aymara knitters.
Men and women participate directed by a Waphuri. The Waphuri is an important person who when the word "Waphur!" is screamed, makes the choreographies change.
The Waphuri use a plaster mask and a big distaff.
