Pujllay - Oruro Carnival Dance
The Pujllay is a historical dance, locally interpreted by the natives called Tarabucos.
The word tarabuco comes from Tarka Phuku which means, "The ones that blow or play the tarkas or moxenos" (wind instruments).
The stature, the hair combed backwards in a braided pony tail and the presentation of their festive clothes are the elegance in days of carnival, a season they call Pujllay.
